When I Wake Up

(Intro Note: One year ago today was last year's President's Day. How did I come to know? My 2011 binder-journal. One year ago today, I scribbled the following poem on my binder-journal. With a slight revision, the original title of my poem was "When I'm Awake." Here it is...)

When I Wake Up

Take me away, Wind
and lead me to a place
where I find Peace
and carry me to her bosom
like a baby craving for comfort
warmth and a love sincere.

Lull me to sleep, Wind
with your soft breeze
that's sweet music to my ears
watch me as the night falls
guard me from unexpected foes
and let the world know you care.

Be gentle to rock me, Wind
so when I wake up I feel much better.
