She’s standing in her room
A rare morning
She no longer lives here . . . just visiting.
I soak up her warmth
Watch her get ready for her day
Perched in her doorway, coffee in hand.
Light pours into the room
Her highlights glisten
I remind her she’s beautiful.
Tilts her head
Where has the time gone . . .
