Afternoon Coffee

You make me think of drinking coffee
Mid-afternoon in my favorite chair.

I sit and I sip, expectation of quiet now satisfied.

Being with you is the pause I scramble to obtain
Because there's no greater peace than the freedom to just be.

So, when I think of you, I think of my afternoon coffee in the blanket-covered chair.

Your only expectation is that I show up,
And you're always waiting for me.

You don't require deep or productive commentary,
But you love to hear how my mind wanders.
You love to watch me simply be free.

You're like afternoon coffee in my favorite chair,
You're the quiet my heart needs.
