five more minutes

I'm a morning person, I have been all my life, but there are times when I do want just five more minutes in bed.

five more minutes

as the darkness begins to turn around
and the light chases the shadows from the ground
I open my eyes
feel the sleep
reluctant to creep
from my room
it is cold out
but warm here under the covers
I am awake
just barely
I do not want to move
not one muscle
to relinquish the familiar comfort of my bed
just five more minutes
I need five more minutes
lying here
covers up to my chin
I close my eyes
against the growing light
not moving
not thinking
only wanting to float away
from the birth of another day
just five more minutes
I need five more minutes
