in the morning


i wake up slowly in the morning

    when you’re with me in the bed

as i open up my eyes and let

    the dreams escape my head

wrapping lazy legs around you

    planting kisses on your face

you begin to press against me

    in response to my embrace

the coolness of the night

    no longer lingers on my skin

as the passion of the morning

    heats the state of love we’re in

your sleepy arms surround me

    and there’s nothing left to do

but to love you and to love you

    ’til i’m full of loving you

the morning pulls the sun up

    slowly drying all the dew

but i lay here wet and happy

    ’cause i’m full of loving you

(written to my second husband…obviously early in the marriage.)
