Morning After

The morning after is a difficult time.

It can make, or break a relationship.

Your actions will dictate your future with this person.

It now lies in your hands.

Will she be your wife? Or just another lover?

I do my best to savor the moment.

I burn her image into my mind.

She turns to face me;

“Good morning,” I say

Our lives will never be the same, I can feel it.

We are now one, no longer he and she, but they.

I kiss her, she awakens with a start.

We feel mutual ecstasy as she gazes at me,

She moans softly as I kiss her mouth.

We now know we are one…
