One Dance Step Closer

I looked into the night sky, the stars shining in their brilliance

and I marveled again at His creation

I watched lovers walk hand in hand

and when they paused to kiss, I smiled

I heard the sound of an air conditioner

and I was reminded winter has passed

I looked at my daughter, and I swelled

with love, appreciation, and thankfulness

I laughed at my puppy, running around

his tail wagging, always so happy to just be with me

I took it all in and I whispered thank You

because I almost didn’t think about you

and when I did… it didn’t hurt anymore
