Crack Of Dawn - Poem by Vaughn Bekker

I wake up every morning at the crack of dawn
I have a little stretch and a yawn
With i song in my head i do sing
Wondering what the day will bring

With a cup of coffee it does start
Then off to work i depart
To face the day and all it`s got
And to make what it takes to fill the pot

So when it`s done and i go home
It`s good to know i`m not alone
For all the burdens i do bare
Having someone with whom to share

So even when i`ve had a pile
It`s nice to come home to a loving smile
To sit down and share a meal
And tell each other how we feel

To spend some time and sit around
And have a conversation without a sound
And back to bed we go to sleep
To see the dreams inside so deep

And if they stir at night with a little fear
Just draw them close and hold them dear
So as we lie there and we sleep
I think that Heaven on us do peep

So tomorrow when we wake
It`ll be a better day that we make

    Ahhh now this is life in all its simplicity, with the love of another to get down and cosy to too... love the line 'Draw them close and hold them dear' has really passion and sentiment in that line and I can envision you doing exactly that! Again a nice poem with a lovely flow and well rhymed, I can see you are a person whom takes life with both hands and cherishes the little things and the love you have within and close by. An ordinary day, taken in and displayed eloquently with touches to make you smile and enjoy what you have. Nicely expressed.

    Just one thing, sixth stanza, line four I suggest you use does not do, because of the tense of it. 'I Think that Heaven, on us, does peep' I added a little bit of grammer and capatalised the H of Heaven as it is the place you are referring too. A few added touches my friend and I think you'd be world class!

    Dale :)
