The First Sip

coffee cup and notes on a table

That first sip,
Slow and labored,
Eyes opening ever so slightly,
If they were closed it would make no difference.

It is but a feeling,
And a feeling requires no sight.
All that is needed is the mouth
And the mind, here.

Working as one to create sensory overload.
Home and happiness.
Safety and calm.
Peace.

You are free from the outside world,
You are in the arms of warmth,
And you are welcome here.

That first sip,
Slow and labored,
Eyes opening ever so slightly,
And you begin again.
