I awakened early,
Snuggled deep into my soft pillow
And wrapped warmly in my quilt
I pretended it was still time for sleep.
As I lay cozy in my bed
You whispered lovingly to me
And I sighed, smiled, and whispered back.
I felt your arms holding me close
As you filled my heart with you
And I realized it was there
That I would forever stay,
It matters not
As long as you’re with me.
The wake-up melody sounded
High in the sky
On distant branches of the tall tree
Outside my window
And I realize the sun was opening
Its sleepy eyes,
And so did I.
Listening to the sweet songbirds
I added my praise to theirs
As together we faced the day.
