I can’t hear you in the morning,
When routine cuts our embrace.
The silence is overwhelming,
As I’m left here in this place.
Your texts take time to check on me,
But the day’s tasks drown them out.
And, as the hours tick away
Your absence welcomes doubt.
So, love me a little louder
Than the ring of our alarm.
Wrap your arms around me tighter,
Till I know I’m safe from harm.
Kiss me a little longer
Before you shut the door.
You’ll remind me I’m important too,
And what we’re working for.
Text me a lot more often;
Fill the void with sweeter words.
And, as the day unfolds itself…
Be the only thing I heard.
