In Proxy

To do
for someone else.
To act and serve in a way
they cannot do
for themselves.
Blessing them.
Giving them a gift of time
or service,
or love,
But ultimately changing
Granting the self
an opportunity
to understand,
in some small portion,
the boundless grace of charity,
the sweetness of selfless love,
to gain a glimpse of
the unfathomable gift
of Perfect
