Ancient Prayer from Ireland

From time to time, I share an ancient prayer that resonates with me. I found this one, which is from Ireland, the home of some of my ancestors. May it bring you blessing.

Dear Lord,
Give me a few friends
who will love me for what I am,
and keep ever burning
before my vagrant steps
the kindly light of hope...
And though I come not within sight
of the castle of my dreams,
teach me to be thankful for life,
and for time's olden memories
that are good and sweet.
And may the evening's twilight
find me gentle still.
