Ante Meridiem

The morning dew
seeps in through the open windows.
The house is cool.

The house sits still
and silent
while I sit on the cool firm couch
sipping hot coffee.

My children are nestled in bed,
warm and toasty
under the thick heavy comforter blankets.

My wife,
sound asleep
enjoying the comfort of sleeping in.

And here I sit,
sipping hot coffee and thinking,
is it enough? Are they provided for?
Do they have everything they need?

I have more than I could have ever hoped for.
