I Cried Today
I cried today, as I touched your face, in memory,
not wanting to waken you in your slumber
I eased out of bed, early, to brew your favorite coffee,
knowing the aroma would awaken you
Together we would sip our brew, and smile,
facing each other with Love
It is Saturday, and the day is ours to enjoy together
As I picked up my favorite book, from the nightstand,
and began to read You caressing my bare chest,
with your hands, I put down the book, and returned
your Love Your vibrant passion was as steamy as
the coffee we sipped, as we lay embraced ...
Ready for sleep, and lying in my bed.. I heard this music,
spinning 'round in my head.. I wasn't dreaming, I knew it
was there.. And it was coming from my Frigidaire..
As I opened up the door, to my surprise, the Pork Chops
were dancing with the Chicken Thighs..
They said, 'don't bother us now, 'cause were really hot,
none of us are gonna sit in here and rot'..
Sweet Fruit and some Juices were doing it too..
And the Milk standing tall, was singing, 'Moo, Moo, Moo..'
