Day 2: Tell a lie (or is it?)

A love song

If I told you I never liked the way
    the sun comes up from the depths of the ocean
at the start of each wakening day

If I told you I thought that briny sea
    with its caressing, cradling motion
never whispered a true song to me

If I told you that beautiful, life-giving mother
    never stirred me, nor taught my devotion
to waken and turn new eyes to that Other

Then I told you my heart doesn't remember
    the precious words you've spoken to me
their rhythm, their cadence, their timbre.
