This morning
Awoke to not your tossing
Stood to not help you dress
Walked to not pour your coffee
Started to not fuss about the mess
Read to not get you the paper
Rinsed to not dry your dish
Moved to not adjust your seat
Jumped to not relieve another wish
Laid to not help lift you to bed
Put away to not sit and cradle your head
Sang to not help you to sleep
Lie here to not check your heart beat
Some day
I’ll believe it was your time
I’ll know we peaked the long climb
But each step today broke me so
I loved you today the same
As when we met that lifetime ago
