just one more time
he calls out
not because we haven’t done it a million times
but because just one more time says
I love you.

just one more minute
as I’m walking
not because our time together hasn’t been good
but because just one more minute says
I love you.

just one more
day, picture, cup of coffee,
not because we haven’t shared these already
but because sharing them again
just once more says
I love you.

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. – John 15:12 (NRSV)
