silent prayers

Pinned Image

I asked him why he loved me
on our drive home.
The reason I asked, is because sometimes that answer changes.
You'd think that all this love would go away in time
but that is not the truth.
I craned my neck to see the stars explode in the sky above me,
and put my two right fingers to my neck
just to feel the simple beat beat - beat beat
that lets me live another day on this earth,
a place I have come to love a little more every day I'm here.
then I said a silent prayer on that drive while I waited for his answer
and the only words spoken, or unspoken were
thank you.
thank you.
thank you.
