And Every Day

If at times
you have forgotten
(such as I),

then the time is now,
on the most starless
of nights,

to remember this –
carry tonight’s
I love you out

of the shadowed room.
Draw forth
these whispered words

(reserved for some)
and bring them
into daylight.

Deliver them to one another
fearlessly,
with your voices,

your eyes, your entire
ways of being –
for we have found

ourselves lost
on this road together,
and the time is now

to remember
that there is
(and ever was)

only one
true
offering.

  1. Oh, this is perfect, and beautiful Erika….and so true. Maybe this insight is the true gift that comes out of tragedy. Love to you.
