    you went to work
    while i stayed in the bed
    and called in sick

    i'm sure you rolled your eyes
    like
    "you don't do too much of anything anyway
    here i go again
    to come back to
    the same old thing"

    mediocre dinner
    peck on the lips
    back to back slumber

    well, not tonight

    you're such a good man
    and this good woman
    wants to make your day
    so good
    you'll never forget

    the house is clean
    your laundry is done
    fresh
    clean
    pressed
    folded
    neatly
    where you want it

    dinner is
    done
    dessert has
    had her bath and is
    making dessert

    children are
    waiting to be
    made

    and then you come home
    rose petals framed by
    candles on either side of the
    staircase
    leading you to
    the rest of your good day

    and i'm waiting
    at the top of the stairs
    to help you out of those
    clothes
    and into your
    birthday suit
    so you are ready for your
    bath in
    rose water

    and for your
    hot oil massage

    and for your
    dinner and dessert
    in bed

    i don't want
    anything from you
    because tonight
    is all about you
    and what makes you happy

    and the only thing i want in return
    is to lie in your arms
    feel your heartbeat match mine
    and to listen to you breathe
    so i am sure
    that you're not just a dream
    you are my
    perfect
    reality

    thank you
    for being
