Embedded

Married 19 years this weekend.

Embedded in the rhythm of each day
like breath in laughter and like salt in tears
are all the words I ever need to say.

Communication sometimes goes astray
but when we pay attention, words appear
embedded in the rhythm of each day.

No need for fancy language to display
my erudition. Simple, plain and clear
are all the words I ever need to say.

Each time I curse, each time I kneel to pray
I find it easy, for the words are near,
embedded in the rhythm of each day,

the ebb and flow, the toss and swing and sway,
the up and down of life's adventures. Here
are all the words I ever need to say

to my true love, my angel clad in clay
with every indrawn breath. I love you, dear
embedded in the rhythm of each day
are all the words I ever need to say.

Collection available! Knocking from Inside
