As I near re-entry to my world each morning

I am eased into awake with-in your arms.
Still drifting 'tween the vales of dreams and waking,
elusive yet are details and alarms-
The sleep falls from my eyes with your body next to mine-
Rousing, I'm receptive. You're my rhythm, you're my rhyme.
The new day waits to penetrate it's orders in my head.
For just these precious moments there is nothing but this bed.
The clock too soon blares it's rude announcement.
No longer can we hope to stave off day-
and so I'll take the comfort of my waking
and let your love sustain me on my way...
I hold the thought of you in quiet content
as I slay my daily dragons, fight my fight-
I know when all is said and all is cared for,
I'll surrender in your arms again, tonight-
