Another exhausting night passed;
Those hours, I thought, were wasted.
Doing nothing, staring from afar;
Hoping I can wish upon a star.
Reaching home, I see you;
Standing still, smiling at me too.
After you kissed my cheek and said ‘Goodbye!’
You went to the door and left me behind.
While looking at the bag I was holding;
I sighed and wondered when will you be coming.
I lay in our bed watching another show;
Trying to imagine how your routine would go.
I wish I was there, running with you;
Burning these fats and strengthening my body too.
But I just can’t, I can’t be so tired;
Even if I wanted to. Even if I tried.
I decided to cook something you’ll eat when you came back;
Unfortunately it’s not as healthy as you could ever ask.
I wish I could prepare something better;
But for now, this dish, please just consider.
I won’t eat if you’re not going to join me;
I’ll wait for you even if I’ll miss hours of sleep.
Later you came, and made a cup of hot choco;
Our meal was complete with laughter and conversation.
I’ll never get tired of preparing meals for you to eat;
I’ll always return the kindness that you offer.
Thank you, my dear, for making my mornings better;
Thank you for the things you do to make me happier.
