Morning Ritual

_____________________________________

After waking up

Before you head for coffee

While I still slumber

You walk around the bed and

Touch my foot, my heart is thrilled

*

As I tip toe by

Letting the darkness stay dark

I gather my clothes

Letting my love sleep her sleep

Until the spoon makes her wake.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My alarm goes off

Gather my clothes then head down

My shuffle is slow

The clang of the spoon wakes her

With her I start the new day

*

Eyes closed but aware

You are starting your long day

Before it begins

You lovingly touch my foot

Then creak down to make coffee
