Not Asking for More

NOT ASKING FOR MORE


Wasn't this always
the way—the new day
arrives as a gift
and you receive it,
not asking for more,
but amazed at its
arrival, the way
what you thought
you knew always
appears in a new
dress, completely fresh,
the same face that
you loved, but not
yesterday's—today's!
And as your chest
swells with breath,
with love that emerges
for everything—
you recognize your
Love, those eyes
sparkling in joy,
opening her arms
and coming, directly
to you.
