Because Of What You Have Done - Poem by Glen Kappy

A Heart Song

Because of what you have done
every dawn can be as this one—
as fresh, as clean, as full of expectancy and color.

I can look ahead without fear or wincing—
for you lift the lid, the cloudy oppression
from everything that comes my way.

I walk with you—
and you are my sun, my shield, my ever-shining companion
imparting comfort and warmth to all my days.

Thinking long and deeply of how I'm loved
I could tether myself to thought of you and dance round and round
drinking dawns reds and oranges and yellows and blues.

I could dance and spin till I plopped down
most thoroughly, most vibrantly, most happily drunk—
and all because of you.
