All November, draft no. 2

All of November

I was grateful and sad together


because everywhere I looked

I saw God in love with me


because I did not have the strength

to tell you so


I did not keep my vow to write each week

--a vow I did not need to keep--

I was sad I did not keep my vow


If I knew then what I know now

I would not have been so sad

It’s funny how December’s cold

has made a cold heart glad
