the light dancing into our room
at sunset
is so beautiful
and it drapes you in a blanket of gold
and you are so beautiful.

i’ve never been a morning person
but when our cats decide that yesterday is now today,
even though the deep blue sky is still sleeping,
and we sleepily roll over to laugh about how bad they are,
i realize that mornings
are so beautiful
and i see your face
in the soft morning glow,
your legs tangled in the duvet we chose together,
and when you look at me
i see that you love me
and that you know i love you
and i tuck your hair behind your ear

and you are so beautiful.
