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.

Lovely. I hope the person you wrote this about enjoyed it.
Thanks so much! I actually did this marathon with her and it was a wonderful experience 🙂
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.
