A Wake Up Call

  • by

Do I take you for granted
Everyday an arms length away
A dilemma at the hands of some boy
A Christmas wish for some toy
With a smile, appreciated
And yet expected

Do I assume that tomorrow
Brings you and your everything
A tut at my feeble joke
A jibe at this aging bloke
With a smile accepting
Without a thought, expecting

Do I assume you're bulletproof
Forever mine, whenever
An illness just a passing phase
My princess throughout all my days
With assurance injected
Immortally expected
