Good Morning

The little king leaves our bed
It's just you and me
The sun shining through the window
Morning wakes us gently.

I reach out to touch you
Feel your skin beneath my hand
The warmth overcomes me
As it begins to expand.

It isn't just how much I love you
Or a good morning kiss
Your touch brings me closer
Do they call this wedded bliss?

I hear the day beginning
Outside our warm nest
Car motors running, people talking
Yet I forget all the rest.

Your hands encase me tightly
I feel happiness begin to spread
This is the way to start the morning
Two hearts dancing in our bed.

The alarm clock shrills out the time
Turn it off, I can't let go
I don't want to lose the warmth
This feeling all aglow.

Yet the sun shines now brighter
It's time to start the day
Hesitantly with a final sigh
The pleasure falls away.

I stand to face the sunshine
A smile on my face
Your touch has brought me closest
To my very favorite place.
