A Day in the Life of Love

by Y. M. Roger

Another love poem Contest Winner 

The sun’s not quite up, but yet filters in –
It’s the husband’s time for him on her skin…
 
Breakfast and lunch prep, then kids out the door –
Just one slight delay: a shoe to look for…
 
Cookies and brownies baked fresh for the day –
Some for school, some for scouts, some for ballet…
 
A crock-potted meal all set for ‘bout eight –
Next, Pop to the doctor; bills while in wait…
 

The ball fields are next for some in her care –
Equipment and water bottles to share…
 
At half-time, there’s a quick run to the store –
Someone needs tape for their class dance décor…
 
And, oh!, don’t forget some extra cake mix –
And, of course, play rehearsal starts at six…
 
Back at the fields, the game’s in overtime –
No worries, somehow they'll make dinner time…
 
Homework begins as ev’ryone gets home –
“Who spilled this soda? It wasn’t a gnome!”
 
Finally, all have been bathed and well-fed -
Mom’s LOVE for fam’ly without 'the word' said!
