You Are the Dawning
You are the dawning light of my day as
I wake with your warm body next to mine.
Your deep sexy voice,
my mesmerizing music.
You are the lilt in my laughter
uplifting my soul to heavenly places.
Your sleepy smile, the antidote
mending my heart.
You never cease surprising me
as your love beams from those dark eyes,
I reach up to feel my messy hair,
I swing my legs from bed to floor
with thoughts of combing my wayward locks.
You grab my arm and pull me back
to lay my head upon your chest.
We lay there silent in our bed,
no sounds are heard except a sigh
exhaled from my satisfied breath.
