the greatest gift

gifts of the heart are the greatest gifts

for life without love is like the seas without wet

the clouds without sky, and the sky without blue

of everything i've ever been given,

nothing is greater than having met you

i thank whatever unknowable forces

coordinated our coming together

from harvard and terrace

to bali, spain, and family

the blessings we have

are innumerable

and more valuable

than diamonds,

and pearls,

and gold

so many float adrift

with struggles, uncertainty,

and loneliness

thankfully there is you

thankfully there is me

thankfully there is us

thankfully there is family

thankfully there are friends

of all of the lives

i could have lived

i am glad to be living

this one with you
