 When I come home with flowers,

Will you be waiting for me in the wee hours?

At the iron gate in the stinging cold

To hug tightly and hand-hold


When I get home haggard from my journey,

Will you whisper ‘welcome home honey?’

And plant a kiss on my cold cheek

To make my already tired knees weak


When I wake up groggy and famished,

Please serve me pancakes that are butter garnished

And let the aroma of hot coffee waft through the room

To wipe away the cheerless morning gloom
