Warm Milk

I woke up this morning with flowers on my tongue
To coffee in my shadows
And baby stutters in my ears

I woke up this morning and fell into a dream
I woke up asleep on cloudy skies
And sipping warm milk

Happier than I have ever been
I awoke to this feeling
And I still don’t have a reason

I want to bottle it
And keep it
I want to feel this forever

I’m going to pour some in my morning tea
Infuse it in my bath water
You’re going to smell it on me
