Monday 29th August
You always liked to wake up early, have breakfast, then go outside in the fresh air.
In 2011 on this day, we were holidaying on Hilton Head Island, and you loved going down to the swimming pool before anyone else.
Wandering around, sitting on the sunloungers, or dipping your toes in the water.
You didn’t like crowds, so exploring whilst most of the guests were waking up suited you just fine.
Just outside the hotel grounds were a set of fountains that young children played in, trying to dodge the plumes of water.
If no one was around, you liked doing that as well, mostly keeping yourself dry, but occasionally laughing when you got drenched.
Early mornings, quiet and peaceful
No worries, no noise, few people.
Sunrise brightens with new colour
So much to find, much to discover.
In those early hours of daybreak
A reflective walk you would take.
A new beginning every morning
Breathe in, to set spirits soaring.
Love you forever sweetheart
Missing our early morning walks.
