Like maple syrup on freshly made pancakes,
Or reading the Sunday paper and doing the crossword.
Staying in all day…
On a rainy day-off from work,
And watching old movies in our pajamas.
Having hot cocoa with mini marshmallows
Or even a dollop of whipped cream from a can.
You fit perfectly into my life
Like all of these other comforting things.
We can watch hours of “I Love Lucy,”
Or we can stare outside at the falling rain,
And talk about our hopes and dreams for the future.
You, me, comfortable, safe, and content.
