You took your time

I am such a fool
Spent the evening bickering
Now your soft warmth calls
I crawl into bed
Your breathing is regular
Hoping you're asleep
I kiss your shoulder
You murmur "You took your time"
Then turn to kiss me

  1. No need to bicker when bedtime comes.

  2. Lovely! We should never let the sun set on our anger.
    Anna :o]

  3. I have spent too many evenings bickering... alas it happens that we have to meet the morning to have it solved.

  4. Nice!!!

    Happy Sunday Robin

    Much love...

  5. Yup. That's marriage. And forgiveness. Perfect, Robin.

  6. Yes, that is the way it goes sometimes. I always kiss Mrs. Jim standing beside her side of the bed before I get in and sometimes even go finish brushing teeth, etc. She might be asleep and then there isn't more kissing, she needs her sleep.
    I won't fess up to the bickering. It always helps to go shopping and eating a bite with them someplace along the way. Seems wives know their men don't really enjoy shopping unless it is a place for mostly men.

  7. ...ha - have you been spying on me?
