Listening With the Heart

by Cheryl Merrick

I asked for a simple thing.
His reply to my reasonable request
was, “No”.
Though confused and a little annoyed,
I paused,
reminding myself of my need
to have faith
in his love for me.

Waiting for a better moment,
I gently inquired again,
smiling as I learned
he had misheard my question,
and grateful I had not merely
reacted to the his words,
but had instead
listened with my heart.
