Merry Christmas



Merry Christmas

With snow
Falling
The ground
Slowly
Covering
The outside
In
Blankets
Of white

The world
Frozen
Except
Inside
A fire
Warming up
A room
Cuddling
Next to me
And
The fire

A tree
Decorated
White lights
Perfect

Presents
Wine
Christmas music
Fills the
Background

As I try
To steal a
Kiss
Under the
Mistletoe

Santa
Visits
Tonight
With
Cookies and
Milk
Laid out

Early to
Bed
Warm under
The blankets

Falling fast
Asleep
You in my
Arms

Is
The best
Christmas present
Ever received

Merry
Christmas

Wear Me On Your Arm



Wear Me On Your Arm

Wear me
On your arm
Like a badge
Of honor
To show off
To your girlfriends

I drive
For you
I’m good
That good
But you don’t
Trust me

Wear me
On your arm
And don’t include
Me
In your conversations
But I make
Good marks
In life
Good enough
To show off
On your arm
And impress people

They’re impressed
With me
How I’m shown
I’m clean cut
Opposite the way
You are

But I’m still
The boy
On your arm
Your glorious arm
To show your
Battle scars
And your
Medals

Compared to
Other guys
You dated
The ones you
Brag about
So proudly
Even though
They hate you
They hurt you
They abused you
I’d never
Do that

But me
I’m good enough
To wear
On your arm
Good enough
To show
Your friends

Good enough
To be
Good enough

If You Only Knew



If You Only Knew

If you only knew
That a majority
Of what I wrote
Is about you

Its inspiration
To write
About something
Nice
Something I wish
And like

You seemed
Jealous
Of what
Or who
I wrote about
Last time

If you only knew
How much
I thought of
You

Well
If you only knew
That the girl
I’m writing a
About in this book
Is you

My Heart's Yours



My Heart's Yours

And a
Heart so
Big
That even
The biggest
Arms
Can't fit
Around

And a
Warm smile
To warm
The
Coldest
Of cold
Nights

And on a
Friday's
Evening
A dress
Laid out
Reservations
At eight
So don't be
A minute
Late

And even
In the worst
Moments
Beauty
Still
Shines through
In you

But at the
End of the
Day
Before you
Fall asleep
In bed

Know this:

My heart's yours

Classy Girl



Classy Girl

Cloudy
The night
Rather
Clear skies
Clouded minds
Acquiring ones
Would like
To think
Alike
Or at least
Agree
With me

All night
Diners
Cozy restaurants
With lights
Just dark
Enough
To sit
Extra close
To
You

And on
My mind
Her
A girl
The one
I'm sitting
Next to

And while
You enjoy
The last
Of your
Martini
I whisper
In your ear
Let's get
Out
Of here

Into the
Moon
So bright
Lighting
Up the dark
Night

And
Back home
To bed
Under sheets
Soft
And nice
All night
Until
Late morning
At earliest

And on
My mind
Her
A girl
The one
I'm sleeping
Next to

So wake up
Breakfast
Two in the
Afternoon
In bed
Pancakes
Or
Maybe
Just
Tea

Shower
And dress
Jeans
From last night
Let's go
Out
Do it
All over
Again

Because
You know
My mind
Her
A girl
The one
I'm always with
Next to

You Can't Read This



You Can't Read This

I wrote
You something
So late
Last night
But I can't
Post it

It was great
However
You can't
Read it
Right now

And it's
For you
About you
And no one
Else

One day
Someday
But not today
You'll read it

And
After that
You'll know
How
I feel
About you

Routine

Routine

I woke up
I went to the gym
I got my running clothes
I changed and went running
I stretched, I lifted, did my abs
I came back took a shower

Apology



Apology

I hate apologizing
To you
For nothing
Over bullshit
Fucking bullshit

I can talk
How I want
It’s not
Demeaning
Or hurtful
Not even
Meant to be

I have to
Choke
On my tongue
When I do
Apologize
To you

I swallow
And I feel
The burning
Sensation
In the back of
My throat

It burns
All the way
Down
To the pit of my
Stomach

I’m sorry

Drive All Night



Drive All Night

A drive
Late night
On the highway
Don't miss
The next right

For the exit
To home
Or just her

Stars out
Guiding
Me home
Like check points
Mile markers
One
At a time

A soft
Radio
A song
Simple reminder
To keep
Driving
Home

Home to
You
Home to
Your
Heart

And when
I arrive
It's almost
Morning

Tired from
Driving
All night
But

I'll be
Just in
Time
To kiss
You
And wish
You
Good morning

Happy Anniversary



Happy Anniversary

Happy anniversary
To a day
That doesn’t
Count
Anymore

A day
That is
No longer
Looked at
Like before

Happy anniversary
To a day
Once
Filled
With happiness
Now
Just another
Day

A day
To remember
Or one to
Forget

Happy anniversary
Because we
Still
I still
At least
Think
About it
That day
And you

The day
That forever
Changed my
Life

Happy anniversary

Yellow Cardigan



Yellow Cardigan

There’s this girl
Tonight
That I’m
Out with
It’s her
Birthday
Well at midnight
Just in case
I drink too
Much
And forget

I like her
Bought her
Her drink of
Choice
Price doesn’t
Matter
Right now
Or tonight

She wears
An attractive
Yellow Cardigan
I try to match up
With
My Blue Cardigan

I hate it
Like I hate the
Rain
The rain
That rained
On us
On the way
To the bar

Note to self:
Bring umbrella
Next time
Even if she
Says “No”

Sophisticated
With class and style
More than me

A dude who
Sometimes
Cares
Sometimes
We never know
The whole story
She doesn’t know
My story
Maybe later
Not now
Not when
I’m drinking

But she’s cute
And worth
Taking home
But I can’t and
Won’t
Not tonight
We swore on
Each other

Sometimes
I could
I would break
But not tonight
Not cause
She is a good
Girl

And I should be
Slapped
But wait
It’s midnight now
Happy Birthday

Secret Wars



Secret Wars

And I guess
There's
A hole
Somewhere
In my
Heart
Since you
Left

Void
Filling
Something
I don't
Feel like
Filling
Anymore

These
Secret wars
I fight

The
Good Fight

I know

But now
You can't
Help
Anymore
Rather
Aren't
Invited

Silence
Undiscovered
Until now
Fully appreciated

But back
To this
Hole
In my heart
A wish
To fill
Fulfill

As
Time will
Tell
Hopefully
Next time
You'll
I'll
Invite you

The Truth About You



The Truth About You

We lie
Truthfully
Well
We
Truthfully
Lie

And this
Truth
About you
Could not
Be a lie

Because
Not a bad
Bone
To break
In your
Body
So
Beautiful

Your eyes
That catches me
Off guard
Frozen
Forever
For only
A second

And don’t
Leave
My side
Because
Lost
Wouldn’t
Begin
To explain
Myself

The meaning
Of things
Or life
All
Rendered
Useless
Unless
I can
Share
With you

A princess
At heart
To the prince
I try
To be

Swept
Off your
Feet
Hopeless
Romantic
I am

But you
You like
That

Change
Something
One thing
Well
You changed me

So truthfully
No lies
The truth
About you
If you want
To know

Is I’d be
Lost
Lost
Without
You

Along The Way



Along The Way

And I can't
Grow up
Quick enough
Or say
What I feel
Loud enough
For others
To hear
Except
For you
My dear

Well
Sometimes
I'll build
It up
To watch
It crash
Down
When I
Come to town

But I feel
It
Or you
Inside
And
Somewhere
Along the way

I know
As I grow
All the facts
And the tax
I pay
For it to
Be
This way

But
You
Make
Me
Worth
Something
Worth it

If not
Just for
Only
You

What Mornings May Bring



What Mornings May Bring

And as the night passes
The bad
The horrible
And all that is evil
Washes away
With the first site
Of the sun cresting over the
Horizon

The light that brings
Happiness and hope
Of tomorrow
Has now finally
Arrived

Today is good
A new chance to
Breathe
Start fresh
And live
Just like each morning
Brings the rising sun

The sun of hope
And all that is
Good

November



November

Remember
Remember
That November
Came
And went
As she
Came
And
Stole
My heart

But now
Afterward
That's OK
With me

Steal
My heart
Well
It's yours
To keep
Anyways

For
Well
Forever
If you
Please

And
November
Only
Comes
Once
A year
Before
December
Hibernates
My heart

But
Keep
It warm
Keep
It safe

For you
Hold the
Only
Key
To My
Heart

And
In that
Fateful
November

I'll
Always
Remember
Never forget
How
You
Stole
My Heart

Ready For Me



Ready For Me

Early evening
I'm sitting
Outside
Your window

Holding
A sign
Large letters
Forming words
In sharpie
Simple
Enough
As that

Outside
Your window
Screaming
Yelling
But not
Heard
Over
The
Music
Playing
My car's
Stereo

The song
Special picked
Hand picked
Because
If you
Were
To meet
Someone
A certain
Someone
Soul
Mate
That song
Would
Play

The song
Our song
Love at
First sight
Every time
I hear it

And I'm
Ready
For you
Standing
Outside
Sign
Music
And don't
Forget
My heart

It's
What the
Movies
Scripted

I'm
Ready for
You
I just hope
You're
Ready
Ready
For this
Ready
For me

Yea It's Like That

And for once we want to wake up next to the girl we love. Anywhere and at anytime, but only if to wake up next to her. It's a surprise every morning; only to know what's coming. Excited as a kid on Christmas Eve knowing there will be presents the next morning. Yea it's like that.

A pact if you could make an internal contract with yourself, but show it off like a tattoo on your arm. A secret meaning that only you know.

And love, it isn't perfect to anyone else except yourself.

The Good Fight



The Good Fight

Turmoil tonight
Well
A little
Light
Of
Thinking

But my
Heart
Is warmer
Than
The
Outside
Cold

Fighting for
Something
Whatever
I know
So

Maybe
This time
I'll give
Up
Or fight
Harder
Than before

And time
Is ticking
Away
Meanwhile

Still
Here
Doing
What's
Best

Just
Hopefully
Achieve
Before
Time ends
Or
Well
Rather

I run
Out
Of
What I
Have

Thankfully Thankful



Thankfully Thankful

Lights out
In the
Stores
I drive by

Early
In the evening
A month
Before
Lights
Trees
And presents
Presented

Peaceful
The streets
Driving through
Ghost town
My town
Tonight

Rainy
But accompanied
By
You
My
One
And only

Thankfully
Thanksgiving

Thankfully
Thankful

Thankfully
You

A Star For You



A Star For You

Well
Damn
Let's see
A star
For
Everyone

Except me
And you could
Have all
Mine
If I
Ever got
One

And this
Right here
Now
Is a load
Of
Whatever

Especially
You know
Who

While
I strive
To be
Just
Justice
Sometimes
For all

And knife
In my
Back
Without
Looking

Yourself
To
Blame

While
Stars
Fall
All
Around me

Hopefully
Maybe
One day
I'll
Catch one
And
Give it
To you

And I Have This Shoebox



And I Have This Shoebox

And I have
A box
A shoebox
I keep
Tucked
Deep away
In my closet
But close
Enough
To know it’s
There

And when
I have guts
Or loneliness
Or
Just because
I take it
Out
And look
Through it

Notes
Pictures
Knick knacks
And even
A book
Memories
All packed
Neatly
Warmly
In my
Shoebox

Reminders
All
Of them
Every
Little thing

Yourself
Pretty enough
Beautiful always
To imprint
Visuals
When I
Close my
Eyes

And
The notes
Post its
Books
Re-read
Pictures
Re-visited

Tragically
Died
Left alone
Too early
Only half
Full
On fun

Or my heart

As
I place it
Carefully
Into the
Shoebox

Only to
Hoping to
Take it
Back
Out
Later

Rarities



Rarities

And
You’ll
Never see
The heart
My heart
Or how
My sleeve
Fashions it
Nightly

And the days
I race
Alone
Against
Myself

Writing
And tea
Just me

Those
Days
Times
Good
But better
Never mind

Books
Books
Books
To read
Records
Played
Dressed warm
In scarves
And
Long sleeves

Lovely
Lady

But where

Sleep
Fashionably
Late
Or rather
Earlier
Than most

Brand new
To feel
Or just
Listen

Car rides
Trips
Make believe
Time

While
In general
On the
Honor
System
With you

Weekend
Homebodies
Movies
By warm
Fireplaces
Or cuddled
Under
Blankets

These are
Just
Some
Instances
Rarities
You should
See

On The Road



On The Road

On the road
Is tough
On the heart
Tough
On the soul

Sixteen to eighteen hour days
I lose track
Of time
And the days

I sleep little
And only drink
Coffee
To keep me
Awake
And numb my heart
From being
Alone

There’s no luxury
In this lifestyle
I read scripts
And focus on
Shot selection
Photography
And camera perfection

My life
I live
Is full of
Smoke
From cigarettes
I’m used to it
As it soaks
My clothes
And my skin

We travel in cars
Packed with gear
And tapes
I edit and upload
Video and photos
In between stops
At gas stations
And diners

Hotels
With beds
Cold sheets
And mini fridges
That I call
Home
Every night

I call and text
When I get signals
But you
Text and call
Less and less

I’ll be home soon
And I’ll kiss you
Love you
Make love
To you

Because life
On the road
Is tough
On the heart
Life
On the road
Is tough
On the soul

Helpless Wallflowers



Helpless Wallflowers

A kiss
From a guy
To a girl
I’m interested in

I watched as a
Wallflower
Even though
It was right in front
Of me

I couldn’t hide
Behind my drink
Or the fact
That I sobered
Up
In those
Three seconds
Of eternity

A flash
Of light
Blinding me
Freezing me
Helpless
Shocked
And
Paralyzed

The eighth
Wonder of the
World
Slowly
Died
Last night
In my heart
And in my mind

And all I could
Do is
Watch
Helpless
Like a
Wallflower

B-Sides



B-Sides

Lame excuses
Or rather
Explanations
Life
Lives on
Days pass
I grow

Sometimes
Everyday
I run
Because
I eat
Too hearty

And love
A lovely
Lady
Daily
Weekly
Monthly
Always
If she’ll
Let me

Shaggy
My beard
But shave
And start
New
Tomorrow

Musically
Declined
To play
Except listen
Jealous sounds
My iPod
Blares

And I art
Only so
I
Can share
Something
With
Everyone

Moving forward
While looking
Backward
Occasionally
Horoscopes
Are correct
So believe
In enough

Or just
You

Sleep well
Dream
Pleasant
Wake up
Refreshed

And I’m
Done
Tonight
To
Give in
Soon
And try again

For hopes
Aspirations
Boston
You
The world
Finger tips
Away

But now
It’s all
Just
B-Sides
Until
I get there
See you
Then

And I love
You’s

You’s
And

Notes
For you

A Kiss Or A Wish



A Kiss Or A Wish

And tonight
If you
Can't sleep
I'll stay up
To wait for
Your call

Just like
I said
Wait up
Long enough
Only for
You

And when
I sleep
Next to
You
I stay up

To watch
You
Sleep
Make sure
You dream
Only
The dreams
Of fairytales
You and me

But when
I'm not
Wired
I get tired

And
Before I
Got to bed
And dream of
You
In my head

It's
A kiss
Or a wish
Before
I turn off
My light
As I say
Goodnight

Chicago




Chicago

Move for me
To Chicago
You love me
And I love you

Move for me
And start a new life
I hope you’re ready
For this
I am

Move for me
Because the new life
I started
Doesn’t include you

Move for me
Because we’re growing apart
And I don’t love you
Anymore

Move for me
Because I’m leaving you soon
And soon
I’ll break your heart

Move for me
Because this will
Change your life

Move for me
Show me that you care
Because I could careless
About you
Or about how you moved

Move for me
Because I won’t
Move for you
I’ve already
Moved on

Love Easy



Love Easy

Speak easy
For the words
That leave
Your lips
Hit me
Sweetly
On my cheek
And softly
In my ears

Lay easy
In bed
Next to
Me
As I hold
You
Covers
Wrapped
Tightly around
Us

Breathe easy
Because
I only
Really
Want you
Tonight
Into
Tomorrow
The month
And more
If you’ll
Let me

And
After all this
It only
Makes
Me
Lucky
To have
You

Love easy
For how
All this

From
Meeting
To speaking
To Falling
You and
Me
In
Love

Is easy

Monday, November 15, 2010

Perfect


Perfect

Perfect
A simple
Enough fact
Is what I
Have
Need to be
For you

From the
Moment
I wake
To every
Breath
I take
Is how
I want to be
When you’re
Around me

And from
How I hold
Your hand
To how
I stand

It has
To be
Right

Perfect

A simple
Enough fact
Is what I
Have
Need to be
For you

One Year Ago Today



One Year Ago Today

And to think
One year
Ago today
We’d meet
This way

Shaking
Your hand
And meeting
You
That moment
I knew
I’d fall in love
With you

An excuse
To talk
Or walk
By your
Side
That’s when
I would
Decide
To ask
You out

From
That moment
Forward
I knew
Where I wanted
You to be
Right next to
Me

And while
Things
Haven’t always
Been so clear
I still want
You near
Me

So you
Always
Have someone
That will
Hold
And keep you
Warm
From the cold

But most
Importantly
A smile
On my face
Because with
You
I could never
Replace

Everything
That changed
The day
I met
You
Making my world
Feel brand
New

And
And to think
One year
Ago today
We’d meet
This way

To you

Well

And
You're
Beautiful
Always
I know
But
Now

No
Done
Goodnight

Eleven After Eleven



Eleven After Eleven

Tonight
A wish
To be
Wished

Not just any
Wish
Like birthday
Cakes and
Candles

But a wish
Special
From the
Rest

Wish
Tonight
For something
Special
Her
You
Me

And
We wait
For the clock
To hit
Eleven
And match
Eleven
Minutes
After

The universe
Aligns
For a brief
Minute

Making
Anything
Everything
You wish
For
Possible

Love For Sale


Love For Sale

There’s love for sale
Down the street
Love for sale
From a kid
Who says
He doesn’t
Need it anymore
He doesn’t need love
Anymore
His love is for sale

What’s the price
Price you can
Place on love
How much would you
Pay
How much
Is enough
To feel fully
Loved

A warm hug
And
Maybe a soft
Kiss
To be held
Or
Slept next to
Slept with

The kid says
He doesn’t want
To deal with
Love anymore
To love
Or be loved
Anymore

A broken heart
Too sad to mend
But good enough to take
What’s left
Patch up
And sell
Sell to anyone
Who wants
To buy the
Love

There’s love for sale
Love for sale
Form the kid down
The street
A kid who doesn’t
Want or need
Love
To give
Or receive
From anyone
Anymore

Love is Hell



Love Is Hell

When hell
Freezes over
You
Me fall
In love

We swear
Against it
Once
Twice
Always

Especially
After
What happened
Last time
Never to
Be
Again
In love

Love is Hell

And
When
We
Fall
Again
In love

We fall
Harder
Swifter
Or just
More elegant
Than before

Bliss
Love is
Just that
And more

Love is Hell

Because
When we
Lose
We lose
Big
Everything
We had

Picking up
Salvaging
What’s left
Trying to
Piece
It back
To working
Condition
At least

Love is Hell

We don’t
Want it
But need it
It’s the surreal
Way of
Why we live
And have
Hope

It makes
Us crazy
And makes
Us tick

It makes
Us complete
And makes
Us crumble

The world
Revolves
And
Hinges
On its
Every breath

But after
Everything
Good
And bad

It’s the reason
Why we
Keep going
Back
For more
Too much
Or
Just enough

It’s why
You
Me
Fall in
And out
Of it
Everyday

Love is Hell

Change Your Mind



Change Your Mind

If you
Knew
What I
Knew

Would it
Change
Your mind

If you
Saw
What I
Saw

Would it
Change
Your mind

Would you
Even
Try

Halloween


Halloween

And I could
Listen
To this song
All night
Into
The wee hours
Of the
Morning
Until the
World
Starts its
Day again
Because the
Flow
The way
It sounds
Tonight
It paints
The picture of
You
Perfectly
In my mind
And as the
Song ends
I smile
To myself
As I close
My eyes
And hit repeat

My Mandy Moore


My Mandy Moore

And sometimes
Some days
I'm all
Wound up
You can wind me
Down

And I'll listen
Or write
Paint and color
Nothing
Fashionable
But lovely
In it's
Own right
Because it's
About you

And my
Habit for
Cooking
Is your
Habit for
Eating
And it's my
Habit for
Making me
Happy

As the days
Pass
You still
Look lovely
Perfect as always
On my arm
And in my
Life

And the way
You dress
Cute
Of course
Lovely
Always
Adorable
Definitely

Cuddling
Sleeping
Next to me
With me
Every night
Always
Forever
And sleeping in
That too

But more
Than nice
Words
Forming
Compliments
Is how
You
Compliment
And
Complete me

So please
Be
My Mandy Moore
Because
I could only be
Your
Ryan Adams

There's This Girl



There's This Girl

And there's
A girl
I love
Always

Because some days
One day
To me
I woke up
From this sleep
Of whatever
I was on
Dreaming

But not
Real
Fake
And
Not fulfilling

A drink
Of the night
Life
Too much
The past
Now
Tossed
Out the window

I grew up
Somewhere
Along
The lines of
Meeting her

Best thing
To happen
I'm sure

And wake up
Because
I'm alive now
Breathing the
Air

Fully
Deeply
Alive

Seeing
Feeling
Being
Again
Good

But back
To her
This girl
Not any
Girl
Lady
One
I could meet

Perfect
In any
All
Ways
Possible
For me
Head to toe
Inside and out

And fall
Head over heels
In love
How lovely
It would be
Her and me

Today
Tomorrow
Forever

Under The Covers


Under The Covers


In bed

Late

Almost

Three AM


Tired

But nice

And cozy

Next to

You


And when

The morning

Comes

I’m going to

Sleep in

For once

With

You


Holding you

Tight

Under the

Covers

Sometimes Realizing


Sometimes Realizing

A week
And a few days
I’ve been official
With this lady
I adore

But she swears
She adores me
More

And I’m happy
With her
With this
With everything
Content

Afraid of
The other side
I haven’t ventured
To in awhile
Year and then
Some

Trust is important
And big
For me
I trust her
I do
I swear

And I really care
But I’m afraid
Of myself
In this
Situations
Like these

For a reason
No reason
Any reason
I’m not sure

I don’t want
To fail
With this
With her
It’s tough
To admit
I get to this point
Where I
Give up
Or move on

But I haven’t
Done
Either
I’m the happiest
I’ve been
In forever

Which is worth
Talking about
And worth
Thanking her

But not like
As a friend
For she means
Far more
To me
Than that

I want to
Do this
With her
I like her
Adore her
Even though
I may struggle
With myself

Sometimes
I’m realizing
More and more
I know she’s
Good
For me
And I’m good for
Her

On The Safest Ledge


On The Safest Ledge

High up
Above
Everyone
Everything
Else

Too high
To get
Hurt
Or
Worse

Looking over
The edge
Down below
I see you

Afraid to
Leave
My spot
On the safest
Ledge

Falling down
To you
Hopefully
Landing
In your
Arms

And not
Hitting
The ground

But until
I fall
Again
Gracefully
Head over
Heels
In love

I'll be
Up
Above

On the
Safest
Ledge

20 Days To The New Years


20 Days To New Years


Twenty days left

Until the new day

The New Year


It’s a new chance

To start over

A clean slate


Time to grow up

And move on


This time will be better

I promise

I swear

I hope


I lost her

Lost her last year

But in twenty days

I’ll start fresh

And win her back


My life will be happier

And more productive

I’ll get up early

And ready

Get work done

On time

And complete


I want to

Workout more

Eat healthier

Drink less

And succeed


When the ball drops

I’ll be there

With this plan

In my mind

And in my soul


And you may not believe me

Because I failed in the past

But this year is different


Maybe I won’t get it right

Maybe I’ll fail

But at least I tried

And didn’t give up


It’s silly

And stupid

To make a list

A resolution list

Of things to do

Things to achieve


I’m ready for New Year’s though

Are you


So the countdown begins now

Twenty days left

Until the ball drops

Until I start over

And hopefully get it right

It Was You


It Was You

And I could
Make up
Stories
Or ways
To meet
Her

Some place
Cheesy
Like a
Coffee shop

And I could
Make up
What she
Looks like

Cute
Beautiful
Sexy
Pretty
And definitely
Adorable

And I could
Make up
Everything
Else

From start
To finish
Her name
What she wore
What she
First said to me
When she first
Kissed me
And
Held my
Hand

Well
That day
Came
And

Well it
Wasn't what
I made up
Or even
Dreamed of

It was
Better
Than I could
Imagine

It was
True
Real

It was
Perfect

It was
Love
At
First sight

It was
You

Good Morning I Love You

Good Morning I Love You

Good
Morning
I love you

Is how
I start
My day

A kiss
On your
Forehead
Silly girl
You're still
Asleep in
Bed

Good
Morning
I love you

Breakfast
Bagels
Coffee
Or cereal

As my eyes
Can't leave
You

Beautiful
Always
Even
In the
Morning

Good
Morning
I love you

And
I couldn't think
Of a better
Way
Or
Phrase
To start
Your day

Than with

Good
Morning
I love you
