She exits freeway weary from her day,
The traffic fumes hang heavy in the air
She wonders what her waiting spouse will say;
Would greeting cold come from his favourite chair?
The trauma of last evening comes to mind,
When late she came, impatiently he said
That she should seek another job to find!
Then rigid silence as they went to bed.
But as she fearful opens up the door
And flinches at expected hurtful fight,
She sees his look of sorrow cross the floor
He whispers “sorry!” as he hugs her tight.
And in each other’s arms they spend the night
Their marriage vows renewed to their delight.
