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


(A Somonka Poem)

Two versions:

1st = me then he

2nd = he then me
