A Specific Moment in Time


In the stillness of early morning

Just before the break of dawn

As twilight’s gleam is fading

I open my eyes and yawn

The crickets suddenly cease their song

Not a sound in the atmosphere

You have one leg draped over mine

You’re snuggling and holding me near

Suddenly the silence breaks

Crickets are chirping once more

I sigh as you release your sweet embrace,

Roll away and begin to snore
