first blush of dawn

In the bleakness
of predawn the fear
is there, as it always is
when I struggle to awaken.
But I know the fear
will begin to dissipate,
the pulsing heart will
diminish before I get
both feet on the cold floor.
Morning coffee
and a pinkish gold
breaking through the
shuttered window and
I know I live, that fear
is temporary and strength
increases with each
moment, and I'm aware
that I didn't really lose
her love despite
the dream and I know
love will endure, and I didn't
die. All things flourish
with the first blush of dawn.
I only wish the dreams
to disappear, for good.
