a tiny thanks

tiny flowerOnce again I come to you and place my day within your hands.
Once again you smile and it evokes a smile in me.
Once again I feel your love, full and free.
Once again I lean back in that love, in your arms, and raise my face to your kiss.
Once again you have blessed me deeply with your presence.
Once again I thank you.

How frail and thin those words seem, “thank you.”
Life itself, love itself, eternity itself, are within your embrace.

And yet, my tiny thanks still fills my tiny soul … and so it fits.

Your embrace gathers me in and more
A drop within an ocean
A whisper in the wind.

Thank you.
