Morning broke through my window this dawn
But you were not there
My nose felt the chill of the room
But my body was wrapped warm in your remembrance
I pulled the covers over my head
Trying to recapture the closeness of your embrace
The softenss of your shoulder
The stroke of your hand of my face
I closed my eyes and savored the sweet memory of your love
But the sun's piercing bright light roughly nudged me into the new day
And I just folded myself back into an envelope of warmth
Lingered there for some more
I did not want to move
Not wanting to disturb the moment
Only wanted it to be real and longed for your kiss
The heart gave way to sweet peace
And I drifted back into a dream world of passion
But the sunshine refused to give and I was forced to get up
So I laid aside that precious moment and knew I had to rise
Leave the dream behind
Face the world of coldness
And clothe myself in a new hope and walk on the road without you
Wondering if the sun would ever warm me again with love

How on earth did I miss this beautiful poem? You speak of the sun shining love upon you again, somehow I think that you will get that wish. Beautiful writing Cindy.   Henry

Looking ahead at what is to come--rather than back at what might have been. The spirit of a true Romantic. Cindy, I love this poem.

I checked the dates- did you write this after reading my BAGELS IN THE MORNING? What a great Female perspective of the same event! Like Art, I'm a Cindy Bendel Fan!

A romantic's worst fear, a morning alone with nothing but a memory. Very nicely done.

This is a beautiful piece. Laced with memories, passion, heartbreak and new beginnings. I believe the footsteps taken to begin that new day will surey lead to love. Beautiful warm and rich writing. A pleasure to read. ~Pam

Breathtaking....reminds you of a past that cannot be forgotten and at the same time of the future that beckons...

Such a soft and delicate write. Reaching out, carefully, and touching this special morning time. Just on the verge of huge sadness, it pulls away and instead embraces the challenge of walking ahead. Just fantastic!

Waking without you, this day incomplete,
I can still smell you here on the sheet.
I awoke this morning,the bed so roomy,
the sun shining bright, but the day still gloomy.
Without you by my side, nothing is the same.
I still wake in the morning, calling out your name!

Very nice here Cindy, Joe
