My Heart’s Education

When did you last say your parents names aloud?

I come home to love every day
I walk through the door
And I am enveloped in it

My parents’ names are love letters
To me and to my sister
To our children and their own

I must
Realize their names
If I am ever to let myself
Be joyous.

For I come home everyday
And find God checking in on me.

You may find yourself competing with him
And I urge you not to try.
