A little past dawn
Light invites itself
streaming through
the window
Feeling the stare
my eyes open
only to realize
night has bid farewell
getting out of bed
and the biting cold
when toes touch the floor
I pull the covers over my head
Bodies warm and cozy
A duet, all snuggly
lying next to my hubby
Daybreak can wait
I’m not willing
to greet
the chilling
just yet
