I awake early in the morning 

Before dawn, just to listen 

To my breath, and the light vibrations of my heart 

To warm your side of the bed…

I’m awake, to hear the motor of my freezer running, and the drips from the bathroom sink

The ticking clock…

To take cold comfort in the dark, stark naked 

Then quickly bundle up in my soft blanket and crisp sheet

To feel the presence of my cat watching me from afar, my feline guardian 

He’ll be the one to love me the most 

I awake early just to hear the city outside my window finally sleep 

And to be the first to witness the jungle’s rise
