Dare

The Thinker, Auguste Rodin

The Thinker, Auguste Rodin

Say It

Shy, reserved, conservative.
All these things and more.
Never one to hog the spotlight,
never one to volunteer,
to stand up and be first.

So much more going on inside
than out. A wry comment
filled with meaning
or witty joke with insight
entailed.

Neither empty chatter,
nor unnecessary words
(or any words at all at times).

Yet, when it came time to speak up,
speak out, make the move
that could change lives,
you dared say
“I love you.”

And that has made the difference.
