Have I told you lately…?

26 Nov

When She roams into the room I gaze up.

Even if My eyes never come unglued from my book, in my mind I acknowledge Her presence.

When She is revealing Her day to me I listen.

Even if I never turn down the volume to the ball game on the radio, I feel the dramatization resonate through the airwaves.

I will be the first to confess that I am not the most prudent , heedful of a person.

I have no justification for this.

I am every bit of a selfish, self-indulgent jerk, that I have ever known.

….You always seem to assure me, through your sheltering and refuge all through my day, that I am of no such thing.

On my knees I can only assemble the courage to pray and say…

                        “have I told you lately that I love you?”
