From the bedside, a shrill ringing
first thought to be the alarm, jarring me to wakefulness,
comes a message that my love sent me in the rising light,
reminding me of his affections. Reading it, my initial reaction
dissipating and being replaced with a feeling of warmth.

settling back into the comfortable folds,
I lay my head against the down,
with the first morning rays falling lightly at my feet,
and in the beginning moments of the day,
the to-do lists, stresses, and panics of the days
lose their substance, slip into the shadows,
disappear completely.

Throughout the day, I’ll keep this message close,
pulling me through harsh reality,
remembering.


The author's comments:
From this piece, I hope that people will get the message that just because there is a lot going on in life, there will also be little things that will help you remember the more important things in life.
