I open my eyes to a dark eerie morn
Checked the clock, it was crack of dawn
My glasses were around I had a feel
The sky outside still dark steel!
Sat up, few moments to blink away
Watching an angel beside me lay
Quite, curled up on the edge of the bed
Ah! A little frown on her forehead.
Her heart faintly beating ceasing the lull
Antonym to my heart now a thump dull
Her fragile limbs drawn so close,
Prior to light the petals of a rose!
For a brief second she opened her eyes
Deep, mystique, green a surprise...
Peeping through, she found my lap,
Bound me into a subtle trap
Gently I lifted her hand and kiss'd
My heart still skips a beat at this...
Every morn now I sit up to blink away
Watching an angel beside me lay!
