All that is Not


on my list (that is not written down)

words chosen carefully (that I did not say)

I thank you

for all you choose not to do

(gratitude) for words unsaid

unexamined thoughts 

and all that is left undone

even though no one will ever know (not ever)

and there can be no applause

for all that is not

surely the God of all that is undone 

takes stock

the only one interested

his list like precious jewels (if only we could see it)

the one who hears the words unsaid (the hate unvented)

he is worthy of praise and the first to refrain
