I WAKE up and hear the sounds of the house,
A creaking outside, don't know what it is...
It's dark and it's quiet except for... plink, plink, plink.
It's beginning to rain, oh, that's what it is.
I snuggle and roll over and now I can hear...
The beat of my heart, so soft in my ears.
The cat, I hear lapping and checking his dish...
To see if I've magically attended to this.
The rhythm of breathing of loved ones, I hear.
And I feel the thanksgiving of a wee, little tear.
The clock as it's ticking, and chiming the hour.
And suddenly I'm dreaming of sunshine and flowers.
Sunshine & Sweetie Pies
