Good Morning Friend

Good Morning

"Good morning, friend", she said in a gentle tone.
Tentative, testing. ⁣ ⁣
You could tell there was a smile in her voice. ⁣ ⁣
But there was no one else in the room with her. ⁣ ⁣
She splashed hot water across her face, watching
the droplets glide down her flushed, morning cheeks. ⁣ ⁣
This was a first. A beautiful first. ⁣ ⁣
She peered directly into her brown eyes,
gazing back at her in the mirror's reflection. ⁣ ⁣
She smiled. And whispered,⁣ ⁣
"Dance with me".
