Warmth

You are irresistible with

Those thoughtful eyes

That shadowed smile

And the way you say

“I love you.”

A treat.

Comfort.

I’m drinking you in

Like a warm mug

Of lightly sweetened tea

On a cold winter day.

Cuddle up with me

Like a weighted blanket.

Warm my body

My mind

And my soul.

Vacant

She approaches the vacant bed

With caution

And reflects

On all of the late nights

The requests

For him to crawl in next to her

And wrap his arms around her

A warmth that only he could provide

He did this to himself

She thinks

As she climbs inside

Pulls the freshly laundered sheets up to her neck

Where they lie

With a cold but comforting touch

I’m here for you

As she creates her linen cocoon

And drifts to sleep

Without him.

My Friend, The Sun

The sun rises

 

Graces the falling leaves

With her presence

Causing them to glisten

As they flutter

Silently toward the ground

 

She peeks through

The highest leaves

To find me

Sitting on a tree limb

 

She smiles upon me

And spreads her rays outwards

To greet me

With a warm embrace

 

She stays above me

A guardian in the sky

Watching over me,

As I ponder

New beginnings,

Keeping me safe.
