Gifts of Expresson 10/19/11: “Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are…”

October 19, 2011

Normal day,
let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you,
love you,
bless you
before you depart.
Let me not pass you by
in quest
of some rare
and perfect
tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may,
for it may not always be so.
One day
I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut,
or raise my hands to the sky
and want,
more than all the world,
your return.

~Mary Jean Iron
