whimsy

I would like to be a taker
this Christmas.

I’d like to trust that the gift is right there
in front of me
with the card that speaks my name

and that it’s mine to unwrap.

I’d like to hope that it might hold love,
grace too,
and faith.

I’ll need to apologise
in advance
for holding on so tight

i can scarcely believe
that it might be mine.
