3:00 AM

by Charles M Harrison

Beep, beep, beep, turn off the alarm as I swing my feet out to hit the floor.
Wiping sleep from my blurry eyes as another day starts like the one before.
I pause to take a precious moment and stop just to stand and stare.
I gaze with longing at my warm bed and the angel God sent lying there.
I study the face of my beauty and long to stay with my bride.
My heart desires to forgo all else, to still lay a little more by her side.
The clock is ticking the day beckons in the predawn night
I have much to do and miles to travel before I see light.
There are places to go things to do and so, so many people to see.
I would gladly toss it all away just to stay with the one who loves me.
Into the shower for a wash and shave now the brain begins to jump start.
As I think how much I love her the great desire of my beating heart.
To have each moment in time, to spend with her as much as I can.
To give to her all my best and to make her proud I am her man.
Four o’clock outside in the dark as I am locking up the door.
Into the car I head down the road that takes me away once more.
I know I must spend this time away to provide for us all each day.
But as I drive I lift my voice, call upon my Lord and pray.
I ask him to love her and bless her to keep her safe from illness and harm.
That he would take her and hold her, wrap her in his loving arm.
I ask that he would just shower her with his mercy, love and grace.
Until I can make it home to once more see here loving face.
Five o’clock and I park the car as my mind must now shift gear.
Work must replace the thoughts of her and I being always near.
I hope that she knows within her heart that what I say to her is true.
You are the best part of me and I will always be in love with you.
