    A new day wakes me in morning light
    The opening of my eyes
    Slow
    Deliberate
    Cautious
    Please let me see familiar surroundings
    Stretching my frame
    Deep, brown skin
    Across light blue sheets
    A deep yawn
    A thankful prayer
    Movement
    All the moving parts in order
    Working as they should
    Bare feet on warm carpet
    A shower awaits me
    Old cells washed away by soap and water
    I am clean
    Refreshed
    Now
    The final part of the ritual
    The most important thing I will do all day
    Beginning with head down
    Slowly but surely
    I look up
    Reflective glass
    A few inches from my face
    I look
    Waiting for the words only heard in my heart
    It comes
    "You're a good man, you're trying"
    Then appears the day long smile
    "And good morning to you"

    The Heartbeat is the number one indication we are living. Your verse is synonymous to that. Well written poet.
