You are the first thing I think of in the morning. You give me strength to face the day. Before I knew you I was lost and I didn’t even know it. I walked through life in a haze, my eyes weighed down with sleep, my legs dragging my tired body from class to class. You woke me up and showed me how vibrant life could be.
From the moment you touched my lips I knew this would be something special. Your scent, so distinctive and familiar fills me with hope. I know that when you are with me, I can get through anything.
There have been times when I’ve tried to let you go. I told myself I could survive without you, but you and I both know that’s not true. Without you there with me on those cold winter mornings I struggle to make it out of bed. My head aches and my mind slows when we are apart.
They know we go together. They know the bond we have. They ask me your name, and just the sound of it makes my day complete:
“Small latte, no sugar.”
