there are moments where i deserve any of this,


but there are also 
glimpses in the morning
   as i roll over
   away from you.
smiles in the grocery
  when you ask to splurge
  on a two dollar item.
mere seconds,
  when i helplessly grasp
  your living beauty.

here in the space between my arrogance
and my astonishment
i thank you.
lucky me.

life and love with you
is next to salvation.
