How Precious They Are

I watched my children sleep this morning
cherubic faces
sweet in repose
the pink blush of dreams
still kissing their cheeks
hair askew
their warm ears so small
when I whispered 'I love you'
into each precious one
I went from room to room
until they began to stir
thrashing the covers and mumbling
awakening
only then could I turn to go
with a smile on my lips
and a warmth in my heart
fortified
ready now to face and greet the new day
