Prayer for My Daughter

Virgin in disguise
A wall hanging depicting an indigenous mother and her daughter, Fábrica La Aurora, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México
 


The day of her birth was six years ago—
How quickly my daughter has grown!
The fruit of my womb is graceful and fair—
I’m happy to call her my own!
 
I pray for this child, the fruit of my womb,
I pray for her both night and day;
I ask that the gods will grant her the strength
To follow a right and true way.

Every pilgrim knows
the tiniest of prayers
is no waste of breath.
