Light Up His Heart

When he comes over
after a rough day of work
and you open the door,
reading the exhaustion on his face.

So you grab the ibuprofen,
fill a mug up with water,
and hear his sigh echoing as he drinks.

He leans against you,
reaching for your hand
as you cradle his head in your lap.

And he talks,
and you listen,
and speak soothing words,
and light up his heart with your love.
