Sweet Simplicity

Jessie MaComment

I’m a simple girl.
I find great pleasure in life’s small gifts-
A warm bath, a stranger’s smile. A good book, the sunset.

So can you imagine how it felt for a girl like me
to wake up to the sound of your sleepy voice, 
“Good morning,” 
The tickle of your eyelashes on my cheek,
“How’d you sleep?” 
The heat of your breath caressing my neck, 
“You are so beautiful.”
But above all, 
The promise that it doesn’t have to end,

"Five more minutes."
