I know you know what I am carrying
And I know I can lean on you
And, I hope, you are OK when I just give a little scream of frustration – internally / out loud
Or use some expletives (cos, well – human you know)
Or just get really snarky (see above)
Or, impatient, or grumpy, or too tired to string any words together at all…
Yeah. You know.

But equally!!
I know you know what I am carrying
And I know I can count on you
And, I hope, you are OK when I just give a little scream of joy – out loud/ internally
Or just burst out laughing (cos, well – human you know)
Or sing at the top of my voice (see above)
Or dance, or joke, or tease, or speak too fast because all of wonder is just bursting to get out
You know!! Don’t you?

Yeah.
You oh Precious Holy
Know it all
the good and bad and everything in between
Remind me, today
to stop for a moment and remember again
You.
Know.
It.
All.
For all time
So be it.
