164: Every Time

And every time I clean the house I will
play joyful music to make light of a chore.
And every time I write what hurts I will
move a little closer to the center of me.
And every time an ambulance goes by I will
say a prayer for the person inside.
And every time you smile at me
I will know I am home.
