Saying please
By Susan Sweetland Garay

As the light fades and the moon rises
I sit in my precious and fleeting solitude.

There is a tint of color
that catches my eye.

Frost will come
and cover us
like nightfall.
Green hues cover
and reflect the color
from the trees.
All we want is someone to remember.

Next year on a Thursday in June
I will take a long walk and will meet
a new soul who still believes that
bringing a miracle is just as simple
as having hope and saying please.
