Morning faces

In which I try to get up.

Tired looking baby on mothers shoulder

Mornings are hard, I have so much to do it can be a stretch to get out of bed. In my bachelor days all in had to achieve pre-work was getting dressed. Now I have a list of tasks to get done.

Despite having to get up earlier than ever I have the best reasons to do so. When I was single I was wondering what the purpose of working and making money was. Now I have those who I wake up to in my life it is clear why.

I do the morning because it is hard, but the rewards are great. It is the smile on their face that what I do gives us a good life, and a life worth that early morning alarm call.

In the morning what do you see,
When morning has broken anew,
It is me looking at you,
And you looking at me.

With the alarm I used to lean,
On the snooze if I could,
But now I know I should,
Begin the morning routine.

I forget how long it’s been,
As I hide under the duvet hood,
Yet I knew it was you who would,
Be the first face in have seen.

An empty pillow used to be,
As regular as the morning dew,
You look at me as you do,
And from my sleep I’m free.

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.

  1. Beautiful – poem and picture. How I wish I could sleep in. But I get up earlier and earlier to be with my son before he goes off to school. And then it’s time to wake my daughter. Snooze – how I wish. But they are my reason, a good reason, for waking early each morning.

    1. Thanks…I am seeing a future where I get up earlier to wave children off to school. Although I lucky I get to be home early to spend the evening with my daughter. I agree, children are a good argument against ‘five more minutes’.
