We all need to hear,
that small secret,
whispered – or shouted
in our restless ear:
“I want you about,
I enjoy you around,
I relish the time we have.”
A breath of vibrant air,
a touch of morning coffee,
the first drops of spring rain,
the wind in your hair;
the darkness falls back,
the heart turns outward,
and there is now dawn.
Short words, quick words,
but demanded words,
words worthy of our breaths,
a masterpiece forged in the lung,
tempered by the tongue,
handled carefully,
given in love, right and just:
“I am glad to be with you.”
