Morning cravings

coffee artOh, every morning what would I do

If I had no access to precious you

You switch on my soporific brain, make me feel alive

My first brush with you each morning gives me the drive

To go ahead and conquer challenges- instead

Of missing my warm, cozy, comfortable bed

The smell of you lingers on my breath all day

Your magical powers hold me in their sway

Giving to each step of mine a spring

This burst of energy only you can bring

While our relationship has raised some concern

By well-intentioned friends, I cannot turn

My back on you, who helps me jumpstart my day

I disregard all objections and keep going my way..


You are the treasured first cup of coffee

That awakens my senses, that makes me see

Everything in a brighter, more positive light

You are my addiction, a lifeline for the sleep-deprived

Me, who would trudge like a zombie if you were to disappear

Saturated (well-caffeinated) with you, the day I don’t fear..


Yes my teeth are stained and sometimes I encounter

Nervous twitches, something in my heart going aflutter

But I feel they are small prices to pay

For the extraordinary boost you give to my day!
