A Grateful Kiss

A Grateful Kiss

written by: Greg Massey



I’ve searched the songs
and felt their melodies
grind against my veins

I’ve read the poems and novels,
yet their words of elegance
found me still the same

As that of a man
whose footprints faltered
where the ocean meets the land

Where the water kissed the earth
it was there
I began to understand

That a Thank You
for You
is often best shared

In the care of the wind
with a kiss
that is a prayer.
