    I awoke to a smile
    as the sun warmed
    my face and the kids
    rushed off to school;

    the scent of sycamore
    covered my room as I
    watch the miniscule dust
    dance in the rays of sun;

    I lay a little bit longer
    For I think about today
    And I wonder if I will
    See all its joy and trials;

    I attempt to rise from my
    Rest only to find the weight
    Of love embracing me close
    Preventing my movement;

    There’s no fight in me today
    For although my mind speaks
    Of work, my heart speaks of
    Loving the one next tome;

    I slowly return to my rested
    Post and pull her arm around
    Me closer so that I can feel her
    Mold into the form of my back;

    I feel her smile through the sounds
    Of moans as we hold closer until
    The buzzing of the alarm reminds
    Me it is timed to start my day;

    She releases a slight moan of
    Sadness when I lift her arm from
    across me and I rise to prepare
    my clothes to start the day;

    I look at her as the sun shines
    Over her frame to leave a shadow
    Of beauty covered by the faint
    Layer of the white satin sheet;

    And as she looks up to me I
    Smile, drop all that I carry
    and return to her to kiss
    her quietly on her brow;

    she wraps her arm around my waist
    keeping her eyes close as she smiles
    from my kiss and quietly says to me,
    “will you stay for a few more minutes”

    Late for work again…
