I Deserve You

The morning is dark
          but it is not early the day is winter’s solstice
             The shortest day of the year

I see her sleeping next to me
          and I am yet again amazed
             Amazed that in all my growth
                and all my determination to be
                   more gentle in the world
                       more loving to the world
                           more aware of the world around me

She is here offering me proof
          Proof that I have succeeded
             Proof that I am more gentle

She: lying in my bed
                   Not a harsh word in her mouth
                          Not a malicious bone in her body
                                She, that is gentle and true to her gentle spirit…

And to think: beautiful, gentle creature that she is…
     I deserve her love…….. WOW!
