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
