Balancing the tastes

I’ll have

Your coffee

Waiting

For you,

When you wake-

As you slowly stir

From the dreams

We’ve made

Together.

It’s a process

To get it right,

Finding the balance

Of grind,

Level scoop or rounded scoop,

Proper amount

Of water,

Brew time,

Cream or no cream,

Sugar or no sugar,

Balancing the tastes

Of bitter

And sweet.

Each cup

An exercise

In intimacy

That moves past

The bedroom,

Yet compliments the passion

Nicely.

It won’t happen

With the first

Cup,

But I’m patient

And I want

To make love to you

With each

Fresh brewed cup

Of aromatic romance.

I want to see

Your eyes slowly

Open,

As the smell

Enters your nose,

And the hair

In your face

Gets brushed away

From your lips

For the first sip,

While I wait

To see

The look

On your face-

Your upper lip inching past the edge of the rim of the cup to taste what I have crafted just for you.

I’ll take notes

And learn

What makes you happy,

What pleases you,

How strong

You want it.

And once

I’ve gotten it right,

I’ll create variations

On the theme

To try new things,

And keep the excitement

Of discovery

Alive.

Maybe this time

Something from Ethiopia,

Or possibly Central America,

Or just a darker roast

From a similar region?

I will never tire

Of wanting

To make you happy

With each sip

And warm embrace,

Touching your perfect lips.

 

I will have your coffee

Waiting

For you

Each morning,

To gently bring you

To proper momentum

For each day,

Because

I love you

And take pride in my work-

Satisfying you

And your needs.
