The Reason……

It is easy to forget
The reason you do this
The reason you get up When your back aches
When your feet bite
When you feel like calling it quits
Then you make that daily trip
As the pale light of morning
Creeps in through the bedroom curtains
The Closet
Put on your armor
Move quietly to their bedside
Leave a kiss upon their brow
Careful not to wake them
They don’t stir
Their dreams uninterrupted
Warm breath and peaceful faces
Not riches, nor power
Fame nor Fortune
No Herald’s calling of titles
For Them
