Early Morning

The Lord has turned all our sunsets into sunrise. ~ Clement of Alexandria

Enya - The River Sings

A ray of light shines in through the curtains

The sun glints against the patterns on the floor

The day is just beginning

Birds are singing on the rooftop

And the post is just coming through the door.



In a minute the day will really start,

And you'll get up to the sound of the alarm

Then you'll have to rise

Before you even open your eyes

You must get up and go to work on time.



You rose into my life like a promised sunrise, brightening my days with the light in your eyes. I've never been so strong. Now I'm where I belong. - Maya Angelou

It's not yet time to get up so I turn

And pull the covers over my head

The day will have to keep

I am almost back to sleep

And am not yet ready to leave my bed.



But just before we get up

I like to lay awake in these early hours

Watch the rising of the light

The banishing of night,

And feeling that the day to come is ours.

Hello Moira, I have to compliment you on your "honest" poetry- I call it beautiful too because it does not hide from reality. I myself have written here on HubPages about the way the beauty of the morning. I plan on reading more of your hubs. I hope you read mine. I love reading hubs by fellow Filipinas!

Thank you for your comments CMCastro. I'll also go check out some of your writings.

Alocsin, I try to approach each day in this manner, but there are other times I just go right back to sleep again, lol. Thank you for your comments.
