Morning Motivation

Saturday, November 23, 2019

As the sun trickles in through the window,
and the call of birds accent my ears,
I breathe in the promise that accompanies each sunrise.

My love next to me, looks tender and innocent,
as his luscious green eyes peek out into the day.

As I stretch my limbs out, a soft nose meets my hand.
The jingling of a collar begins, as her body
wiggles with excitement. Her people are awake.

I am her person. I am his person.

They are my people.

This is why I will take this day and live fully.
