Coffee


As dawn rolls over her blue covers

As dusk put on her black sheets

My prized elixir

Has my weariness beat

Caffeine is a drug

And I am addicted

No hope of getting sober

No desire to either

The strong, bitter taste

That makes my mouth water

Hints of bark and hints of smoky fire

The essence of nature

Is brewed in my cup

The taste is so good

Creamer or not I still love

I need a few hours

The life it fuels me with

Its living soul

The brown beans are truly a gift

It soothes down my throat

The heat that pleases my mouth

The heat that barrels down my chest

The clarity is brings to my head

The energy it brings to my flesh

Oh how I need you each and every day

And to drink deeply of you tomorrow
