    Traffic kinda hectic tonight
    sun's setting over the buildings
    the city lights start to arrive
    think i'll open the sunroof
    so i can catch the evening breeze;

    There's a scent in the air tonight
    it only shows in the fall after
    the heat of summer has subsided
    i'm pulling up to my drive
    think i'll sit here a while

    Loosen my tie, recline my seat
    slip in Najee or maybe Miles
    say, "welcome" to the moon as
    it peers through the rustic sky
    this is a slow jazz moment.

    Enter a dimly lit living room,
    leather couch in the center
    Coltrane playing in the speakers
    as i light an incense or two
    think i'll rest a while.

    Slip off the coat,
    pour a glass of wine
    set the pillows so i can see
    the stars as they arrive quietly
    think i'll relax for a bit.

    Point between relaxation and slumber
    the door opens slowly, so i adjust
    the pillows under my left arm,
    pour another glass with my right;
    think I’ll make dinner tonight;

    I lift one red rose to her as she
    rest her head on my shoulder
    i gently brush the petals across her
    brow as i massage the stress away
    "Long day at work?"

    Waiting for that one moment
    when her head becomes heavy;
    relaxation has taken over, so
    i gently kiss her on her brow
    and we both fall off to sleep.

    Welcome home my dear...
