She Loves Me

I watch her cooking

Each movement precise and confident

Concentration and grace

Punctuated by joyous singing along to the radio

I watch her entertaining

Talking, laughing, making sure everyone’s glass is full

The perfect hostess

Queen of her domain and ruling with benevolence

I watch her working

The cute frown line forming between her eyebrows

Competence and efficiency

Getting things done with accuracy and flair

I watch her sleeping

Expression smoothed out by repose

Peaceful and beautiful

Dreaming of things just out of her reach

She loves me

I know she loves me

That’s why she always leaves the curtains open

So I can watch
