Another example of the poetic talent of Richard J. Amoroso.

upon first light, from the window shade-
                your face, it starts to glow
morn's first gleam, my heart awakes-
                 of this I want you to know
with a tender kiss, my lips will touch-
                    a face so bathed in need
for as you stir, to greet the day-
                 your love I will gladly feed
to start the day, with you at hand-
                         the first I get to hold
your urgent need to light the fire-
                   will cause me to be so bold
and when at last, our joy's been shared-
                 like a serendipitous surprise
the night will bring, that wondrous thought-
            that soon, will come sunrise........
