At Six

My waking time is six o’clock
Smack the button to stop the squawk
Wake the kids and get them going
Start the caffeine river flowing
Work and think and keep on giving
What it takes to earn a living

Head and hands may be creating
But my heart is always waiting
To join my loved ones for a meal
Share good news, bad news, what we feel
The blessings of our family mix
Return with hands at twelve and six
