I Know (Hour 4 – 2020)

Prompt 16, Half Marathon 2: Hour 4

Title: I Know

I wake up every morning next to you,
and with your eyes closed, I see you gently smile.
In that one instant, that one daily ritual, I know.

You understand me and I understand you.

I can have the worst day or the best.
I can laugh with you or cry.
I can share my dreams.

The day is only beginning.
And that gentle smile,
tells me all I need to know.

With you by my side, I am never alone.

  1. Fantastic poem. I am reading this poem with my wife and this is her favourite of all your poems. Co incidentally I did the marathon together with my 14 year daughter who is also a poet and it has been an incredible amazing experience.
