Morning Montage

written by: Judge Burdon


Unplugged my alarm clock
I can’t get out of bed
Gave my shadow the day off
I’d rather lie here with you instead
The morning singing with traffic
And the cat’s crying to be fed
My thoughts have all been distracted
Watching sunlight dancing on your skin

A stranger to my emotions.
And then you knocked on my dream
The door to my heart you opened
You kept my secrets.
Girl you undid me.
Now daytime taps at my window
Like a child that’s been ignored
While heaven sleeps on my pillow
Newspaper lays orphaned outside the door.
