Passion For Life

Morning breaks the day
I wake
Wipe the small crumbs from my eyes
At first mornings glance
Things are but a bit blurry
I render the thoughts of the day
Pausing only for a moment
Prioritize

First order
Coffee
Than a smoke
Out stretched arms 
With refreshed legs
Stumble to the kitchen
Java
My nectar
It gives life, life

I'm ready
Out the door I go
Eagerly awaiting today's events
New experiences
Another place
A new face to memorize
Something significant
Is this the day
But then isn't every day
Experience my passion 
Life

Live well today
Tomorrow may not come
