    She wakes up early
    Patiently going about this and that
    While waiting for the eastern sun to show itself
    So many around her
    Millions by the bay
    Can just one of them
    Make her smile
    Make her happy today

    Yes there is one
    Heavy and warm
    Like the best old sweater
    Uncertain her days
    Until she puts the sweater on

    There is opportunity for thought
    Five, six hours before the noontime nap
    Plenty of time for meditation
    Quiet laughter
    Planning and reflection

    With thoughts to think
    Emotions to feel
    There is a park that has her favorite bench
    Almost like the sweater
    Comfortable and familiar
    She sits like all fine women sit
    Inviting
    Yet unapproachable

    Some are close
    They join her in thought
    She'll be easy to find
    The brightest spot
    This morning in the west
