It’s that early morning quiet
When I can deceive myself
Into thinking I am alone

A stillness
A kind of peace
Descends upon my heart
Today there is winter sun
Which soothes my psyche

It’s the changes, I think
That are wearing me down
Regrets, what ifs in a
World of brash confidence

And then there is you
Who even though
An ocean away
Have your collar
Fastened tightly
Around my neck

And the leash
Pulled tight
Lovingly secure
In your strong hand

And knowing I am yours
Is enough at the moment

Knowing I am yours is everything
