Awaken

I awaken to sunshine
climbing through my blinds
welcoming me to play
it whispers:
“good morning my love”
while it gently caresses my eyelids
holding my hand we rise together
“let me illuminate your life
lets be best friends forever
me you and the breeze
lets dance till dawn
and celebrate all that there is”
a big smile spreads across my face
as love fills my heart
pumping with gratitude
my feet touch the ground
and I want to run
I want to jump
I want to play
today is my day
and yours as well
lets go play in the sun!
