an ode to java.

coffee. java. some may call you the bean of life.
you are the essence of my being in liquid form.
you help me get going
but you remind me when i need to slow down.
you are the only bitter thing is this world
that i daily crave.
you are the cure for every headache 
and the reason i steal mugs from starbucks.
you give me one more reason to love my husband.
you are my first thought every morning
and i call to you from the pillow.
you are the provider of jobs 
and a well thought out beverage.
some people give you up.
i cant imagine why. 
because to me,
you are perfect.
