5:19am. – A Masterpiece

I thought it was the end of days,
my heart becoming stone,
my body clay,
until you came and chose to stay.

Those before you,
would only wittle away.
Sculptors or vultures,
they’d leave dust and grey.
So when you approached,
I expected the same.
Another tamer looking for artists to claim.

Sweat dripping from your brow,
I can see you giving your best.
Taking your time,
I peeked not expecting much to be left.

You added a crown,
gave me wisdom and strength.
Wrapped me in a cape of your love,
gave my legs extra length.
Now I’m a giant,
capable and complete.
You don’t see what is needed,
you add to my beat.
Broke me free of my tomb,
and by my side we will reign.
