  • It is the calm, soft side of morning,
    The slow motion moments right before waking
    When quiet as a whisper you come,
    Changeless in the remembering.
    Fragile as bubbles, we embrace.
    Nothing is lost to the space between us, but
    Yesterday’s grief is a place too lonely to visit, so
    Careful not to leave any of myself behind,
    I yield to a blameless stirring.
    And awaken to the light.
