A Few Simple Gestures

These are simple things I'd do, if you were mine to stay
I'd do these things, to show I care, the morn of each new day
I'd make you coffee, muffins too, and set them by your side
When you awake I'd kiss you 'hi', in you I would confide

I'd walk the miles in rain and sleet, to buy your favorite book
I'd walk back home, a happy man, along the gushing brook
The smell of fresh ground coffee, I enter and feel warm
I hand the covered book to you, still dry despite the storm

Your thankfulness is present, I see it in your eyes
You hold the book against your bosom, look up into the skies
Our eyes would meet, I simply nod, I know I've touched your heart
Your curl up now, begin to read, I leave the room and part

I'd make the lunch, you read the book, I'd do the dishes to
Just to show you that I care, and want to be with you
I'd take the washing from the line, I'd even start to iron
You read your book, I wouldn't mind, my love for you would shine

    Good gestures!
    Ours, the lazy ones' lives, will be made a little more difficult if our better halves get an access to your poem.
    However, a very nice poem, and I do appreciate your good meaning gestures...

    Washing dishes in the sink
    Fetching books for her to read
    Then with a cup of coffee to walk in
    Is taking Feminism a trifle too far
    In this role reversal I do see
    A big global conspiracy
    And some day you may find
    It be our job to bear babies fine
    While they swish their hips and shine
    And order us about as now husbands we do......

    I meant this in good humour and consider both man and woman equal in everything. I do invite everyone to my page for your esteemed comments.

    Incredible, warm, and touching; I could just imagine and feel the comfort and peace you would bring! Wonderful; thank you!

  • Babatunde Aremu (11/7/2013 2:39:00 AM)

    This is simply wonderful. A responsible act by a responsible man. Great job

  • Chano Leal (11/12/2012 10:07:00 PM)

    Good, somewhat infantile.

  • Ronn Michael Salinas (11/9/2012 2:02:00 PM)

    Aww you'd get sick though. From the weather. Would she then be able to take care of you in turn?

  • Kezang Dawa (11/8/2012 12:13:00 AM)

    very emotional poem.....

  • Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi (11/7/2012 6:37:00 PM)

    the trick of happy life! Bradley! You must be a happy man! You don't go out to play golf? You don't watch the sports channel day and night? very strange, , but your poem is very cute, but I don't like my young to do it everyday, may be once in a while!
