Yvette’s Heartprints

At the ground breaking ceremony, Yvette Rodriguez shared this poem that she wrote:

Heartprints

Whatever our hands touch
We leave fingerprints!
On walls, on furniture,
On doorknobs, dishes, books.
There’s no escape.
As we touch, we leave our identity.

Wherever I go today
Help me leave heartprints!
Heartprints of compassion,
Of understanding and love.

Heartprints of kindness
And genuine concern.
May my heart touch a lonely neighbor,
Or a runaway daughter,
Or an anxious mother,
Or perhaps an aged grandfather.

Send me out today
To leave heartprints.
And if someone should say,
“I felt your touch,”
May they also sense the love
That is deep within my heart.
