Early Morning Riser

What I would not give
For just one more hour
Of blissful unconsciousness.
Another hour just for myself,
Enfolded in layers of homemade
Quilts and store bought fleece,
Letting my still body sculpt
The mattress below into my
Own meditative masterpiece.
Stealing the smell you left
On my pillow and recreating
Your presence that I long for
As soon as my eyes catch first
Glimpse of today’s reality.
What I would not give for that
Extra hour with you in a world
Of just us.
