The Way It Is

When I open my eyes in the morning,
I see your face in the dawn.
I remember my reasons for living
And Honey, I’m sure you are one.
I close my eyes in the darkness.
I feel your warmth by my side.
Of all, with which I’ve been blessed,
I’m most thankful for who I’m beside.
I stop work in the afternoon
To wonder about how you are.
Knowing you’ll be home soon
Makes me listen for your car.

Beautiful. "Warmth beside me, your face in the dawn." Love the imagery. :-)

I like the ending. Reminds me of Tagore's Gitanjali.

Thank you, Nonbeing. I am not aware of Tagore's Gitanjali. I will try to find it on the net.
