Poem: I Get Up In The Morning

I Get Up In The Morning

I get up in the morning
A new day begins
I go the mirror
And shave my face again

The years show my age
But my eyes still shine
I think of my lady
I’m so glad she’s still mine

I go to my workplace
And I do my thing
I listen to Pandora
And I start to sing

The day passes quickly
My tasks all complete
I drive to the restaurant
And order tea that’s sweet

The evening meal is fine
As fine as fine can be
And my desert
Is something for all to see

I return to my house
Now the day is done
I sit on the porch
And watch the setting sun

The day is now over
And I go to bed
I say my prayers
And meditate on Scripture in my head

I pray that my dreams
Have me thinking of you
And in my slumber
My dreams come true

I get up in the morning
A new day begins
I go to the mirror
And shave my face again.
