You and I Never tell each other How much we mean To each other… Of course, B’days and ’nniversaries Do not matter They are but perennial And pre-emptive … And we both Don’t believe in Mother’s or Father’s Days Nor endorse All that Valentine’s do! Yes, we do bond… We gel and we revel When we talk shop As parents of our kids… Where? Where do I fit In your scheme of things? I have often Wondered… Then… for four nights As you tossed And turned and whimpered In your sleep I knew… I knew I mattered to you That you are worried That you cared… I saw it In the relief That coursed through Your veins, slumping you Against the cushions… And in your voice Thickened with Controlled emotion… As you repeated the good news! And When I found you Thanking God For sparing me I too, prayed to Him Thanking Him For giving me, You!
