Vases of Flowers

I care for you deeply and lately I find
Discreetly and slightly I’m being unkind!
Honestly unintentional – you know I’m no liar
So direct, with respect; I’ll keep feeding the fire!
You clean up and feed up and make up this home
That I cherish and fill up and treat as my own.
And though daily the time may drag
– slow and by hours –
Eventually someday I’ll bring home your flowers.
