Love Poem to God (this)

Did I expect any of this?

No, I did not expect this in my life.
I have been innocent of the expectations of this.

I did not expect to find in you the Friend of a lifetime,
or the sacred Other within you,
or the Deep-time experience
in an everyday conversation over tea.

I did not expect to find such rich blessings
in relationship with you.

You are my unexpected treasure
dear One.
