“Turn off the light, I’m trying to sleep,
It’s your own fault that you can’t settle.
I said don’t eat –
All those plates that you heap –
You’ll only regret eating it later.
It’s not the three pizzas, that you devoured with one breath?
There’s something else on your mind – that’s the matter?
Then give me a moment to put on the kettle,
You can tell all about what’s on your mind,
I may be tired, having had a long day,
But that’s no reason I cannot be kind.”
A salute to all of the patient and loving spouses and partners who make our lives rich.
