Night In Heaven

Early morning sunrise over the city
rays of sunlight dance on the river
Lady Liberty glistening – reflective bounce
and it has been such a long time
since I have been stirred – by a new day
when I haven’t felt a knot in my stomach – angst
I open my eyes slowly; for a moment I question – where am I
unfamiliar bed, pillows, sheets, windows
off in the corner a mahogany desk
a pile of scripts, books, assorted candles
and a vase filled with fresh flowers – Bouquet Of Love
suddenly my heart fills with joy
and I realize I haven’t died and gone to heaven…

I spent the night in heaven – with you
