You Wake to Her Breathing

Rare moments in life afford you the opportunity to capture pure joy and a smile.  This is one of those rare moments.

My two favorite beings on this planet.  Here’s my expression and my inspiration.

You Wake to Her Breathing
When reality escapes you,
Late at night.
And you don’t feel right.
You wake in the dark to her breathing.
To know she’ll never be leaving.
Someone’s there, someone who cares.
You can close your eyes,
And you dream the dreams,
No one else can share.
Morning face in the mirror,
A familiar one.
Your hand on the razor,
There’s a job to be done.
You’re one in million,
But you’re not the only one.
‘Til she reaches for you,
Upon the rising sun.
Point the car down the highway,
There’s work to be done.
You face each day,
The same old way.
Lift the phone off the receiver,
Makin’ someone a believer,
You sell your soul to be with her,
One more day, one more day!
And when your day is done,
Your pals are lookin’ for fun.
You steer your head clear,
Towards her waiting arms,
And the setting sun, the setting sun.
You know you’ll never be a genius,
But you’re sure…
Nothing will ever come between us,
Because she’s the only one,
The only one.
