My Sunrise

This morning

I  looked into the sunrise and thought of you

It reminded me of how I felt when I first held you

It was an honor, one not deserved 

One I wasn’t sure I was prepared for 

But one reserved for me

Thus I gave praise

Tears vacated by ducts

As love courses through my veins 

Your presence connected my existence with purpose 

My Sunrise

And like the aqueducts of Rome brought life 

My love flowed to you

and became a prosperous  Land 

With pride I see you as developed field 

Filled with vegetation

A plentiful harvest 

With plush trees that offer shade

To those overwhelmed by life

As the sun retreats behind the clouds

I think on this time you are away

And smile because I know it will emerge

And when it does, it  will again provide light to all open to receive it
