“for yes”

for yes from those who chose to say yes,
for tasting lonely, for knowing full

for you before, love – during, still,
for sons like oil down my chin

for northern slope and southern friends,
for minus eight, and plus 21

for waking to a song not over,
for thanking what’s been given, done

for this and you God, love unending
for lifting to a new day come
