thanks, a poem prayerLast time, you remember

I asked you for help


I asked

For a lot of reasons

And spoke

A lot of things

In that one word


And you did it

You helped me

In ways I recognize

In ways I sense but don’t necessarily see


In ways I’ll never know

But can only believe


So today

I just want to say


A simple word, I know

That falls so short

Of all I want to say


It’s not enough

Never can be

And its tone

Can sometimes mean

The opposite of thanks


But here

And now

It comes from that place

So full of feeling

It wells up and over

With something akin to tears

And laughter

And a full heart

At all you’ve done

And answered


All this, in my heart

And mind

And hidden, even from me

In my soul

Is in this thanks


So here it is

For you
