Confession (First Sunday in Lent)

I have loved
too little
and too late.

I have disengaged
too easily and
too coolly.

I have endured
too fearfully and
too immutably.

I have cherished
too sparingly
and too lightly.

I have waited
too patiently,
too tolerantly.

I have remembered
too selectively and
too carelessly.

I have dared
too timidly and
too composedly.

And again:
I have loved
too little and too late.
