My Morning Refreshment

I wake up in the morning,

Warm and comfortable in my bed.

As my boyfriend walks out the door,

I tiptoe to my window to make sure he safely enters his taxi,

And when he does,

I scramble to my laptop,

Where I can peacefully get onto my email

And listen desperately for those three words,

"You've Got Mail"

When I hear them,

I lean back happily in my chair

And a silent Hallelujah Chorus comes into my ears.

You emailed me,

And your words are well chosen.

It is as if you are a story-book character,

Too perfect to be real.

But that matters not to me,

As long as we can safely keep in touch,

My dear, name-less friend.
