Tickle Me

Sleepy birds are ruslting
between peeping sunny spots.
As sunrise fades to morning
I disentangle my sheets knots.
The sudden brisk air awakes
my bedmate from dreaming sleep.
His sleepy smiles is all it takes
to have me out of bed to creep
unless he snuggles in tight and close
I don't want to move but stay in bed
he'll wiggle up till we're nose to nose
wrap his arms around me and knock my head.
Why this is so addictive to me
in the early morning hours
is when he says "Mom, tickle me!"
then the giggle monster he empowers.
