Me, my Love, 4:30 a.m.

It’s Tuesday—4:30 a.m.

I wake before the sun
Slip quietly out of the bed I’d rather stay in
Walk silently to the bathroom down the hall
Careful not to wake you
I think of you, not 40 feet away,
Blissfully asleep as I shower
I imagine waking you with the passion that is yours
Only yours
I step from the hot shower and write your name in the steamy mirror
I smile
Wipe it off and see the man you love looking back at me
I never knew this man before you
Not completely
I know him now
He amazes me as much as you do
He amazes me because he would not exist without you
You have made him better than he ever imagined
I dress in silence
Walk to the kitchen
Make a cup of coffee
Something healthy to bring
Always something healthy
So I can live longer with you
I write a note and leave it on the blender
Knowing you’ll see it and smile
Knowing you will think of me and I will smile
I walk to the bedroom in darkness
Sit on the edge of the bed
Breathe you in
Then bend to kiss you softly as I let my hands explore
One touches your face and strokes your hair with adoration
The other slips down your body
Seeks out and finds your treasure
Probes and caresses
You mew and moan lightly
As I remind you of the day
And the love I carry
I taste my fingers and offer you a lingering kiss
Passionate and deep
Another reminder
Of what will come tonight
Then I leave for work
With your taste in my mouth
The feeling of you on my skin
Your fire in my soul
And love in my heart
