"when more than was lost has been found"

I would never give you
what you wanted
just because you asked me to.

But now you aren't asking
and I find myself wanting
to give you my gratefulness.

I think this is freedom
to be falling deeply in debt -
there's a love I can never repay.

So we'll owe eternally
but when these loves overlap
the extra comes out as praise.
