FOR MY HUSBAND

My Dear Husband, my love, my heart, my soul’s friend.

By the time you read this it would be midnight as you

make your way home from work. By the time you read this,

I hope the rain would have stopped in Houston.

You see, things have changed since…

Look now it’s simple!

 

When it rains, you can’t wear a hoodie

When it’s cloudy you can’t go to the store

When you are thirsty, you can’t walk alone

When it’s cold you can’t walk slow

You see, things have changed since…

Look now it’s simple!

 

You have that dark hue that causes concern

You have that build that sparks anxiety

You have that swagger that brings fear,

You have even broader shoulders than that boy

You see, things have changed since…

Look now it’s simple!

 

You can’t chew candy like you used to

You can’t look them in the eye when questioned

You can’t use your fist when they have a gun

You can’t over-power them even if they started it

You see, things have changed since…

Look now it’s simple!

 

As long as their heart is in the right place, they get off free

As long as they called 911 first, they get off free

As long as they have bruises, they get off free

As long as you can’t talk they get off free!

You see, things have changed since…

Look now it’s simple!

 

It doesn’t matter that you have a family

It doesn’t matter that you have me and the children

It doesn’t matter you earn an honest living

It doesn’t matter you have a double Masters degree

You see, things have changed since…

Look now it’s simple!

 

Just let the rain soak your head, no hoodie please

Just let the cold freeze your scalp no hoodie please

Just slouch your broad shoulders, no hoodie please

Just run from the gun, no hoodie please!

You see things have changed since…

Look now it’s simple!

 

Come home to our 2 sons in one piece

Come home to our love, stay one please

Come feel the caress of my sleeve

Come warm cold feet in the warm heat

You see, things have changed since…

Look now it’s simple!
