Oh, to wake up with you lying by my side
Your head upon my shoulder
Your arm along my chest
Your favorite spot

I run my fingers through your silken hair
My wide palm on your forehead
My free hand on your lower back
The filet mignon

When you first lay with me
Your head on my shoulder you said
Like no home I ever knew
This feels like home

Canadian-born Lucien Morin came to poetry by composing song lyrics. This is his first non-musical poem.
