A Day Off
Felt strange at first
Like a new pair of HIgh Heels that you’ve always wanted
once you slipped them on felt stiff and Unsure around your foot.
Days Off, like High Heels though, get comfortable quickly.
And I soon relinquished my “I have a Million Things to Do Anxiety”
Surrenedered it to The Brazilian in my Bed
Who said simply
"It’s a Day Off. Enjoy It."
And so I let go of everything I thought I had to do today
Because that’s what tomorrows are for.
And today was for curling into my Husband’s warm frame
Quietly watching him as I took the time to Breathe
For Once I enjoyed a Real Day Off
with The Love of My Life
Today was a very very Good Day Off
