Drinking Coffee

Is the morning worth the night?
Is the calm worth the storm?
If I live another day,
Will somebody keep me warm?

In the hours where we weep
In that grey hard twilight land
Where the blood begins to seep
Who will have the strength to stand?

If the touch is what it takes
If the hope is somewhere found
Will my body still be whole?
When my time does come around.

        1. What I am thinking about doing is actually rewriting one poem (from this site) a month. Not only would it be a good exercise for me as a poet, but I think it would be potentially interesting to some of my readers.

What are you thinking?
