something like awe

A gentle man, who lets me sleep 20 minutes past her waking.

A grin, looking away from her Mickey Mouse for the briefest of moments.

The indulgence of a warm morning bath.

Clothes that look, that feel, like I feel.

Oatmeal in a mug, coffee with caramel.

A sweet face screaming at the window.

The annoying, loud, enthusiastic canine welcome.

Garlic scented veggies wafting from the kitchen.

Messages, mom called, char called, people who love you called.

Candles lit in the darkness, the dullness of winter.

Come sit by me and watch Strawberry Shortcake.

Come sit by me and watch the ghosts.

Red wine in heavy glasses…with yellow cheese.

Blankets made with care.

Vanilla bubbles in hot water, the radio telling me a bedtime story.

A robe that feels like a hug.

Pajamas with flannel and clouds.

Cold sheets and warm kisses.

Small silent prayer:

Thanks god, thanks world, thanks family

may I always see you as you are

with something like awe.
