What would I tell you
If we were together
And talked about my day?
Would I talk of the drudgeries,
Of waking early, and work, &
The usual driving to and fro?
Do you want to hear more
About my meals, or grooming,
Washing dishes or clothes?
How did you sleep? I might ask
To speak of my dreams, and
Rolling from side to side, alone?
No, I want to speak about the joy
That is your presence in my life
& every thought you influenced today!
