Grateful

I did not know 
how the light touching the petals 
of the flowers 
would touch my heart.
The surprise was in that moment
when I came around the corner
and stopped.

How often have I looked at this room,
walked through these doors,
peered out those windows
and not noticed this light?
How many days have I 
entered here
and taken this for granted,
this sanctuary,
this place I share 
with my best friend?

Is there a stronger word than grateful?
