A New Friend

O my body,

For you I have brought

A new friend: simplicity.

O my vital,

For you I have brought

A new friend: sincerity.

O my mind,

For you I have brought

A new friend: serenity.

O my heart,

For you I have brought

A new friend: purity.

O my life,

For you I have brought

A new friend: humility.

O my soul,

For you I have brought

A new friend: my surrender-seed.

O my God,

For you I have brought

A new friend: my perfection-fruit.
