At Least

At least have the bed made
I do not ask a lot
Just show me in this little way
That you’ve given me some thought

At least have the bread made
As often as you are able
It means so much to me
Home made bread on the table

At least have dinner made
And then you can feel free
To do the things you want to do
While I’m away from thee

Oh, and please have dessert too
I love that final sweet
I feel just like a king
When you serve a special treat

You may wonder Who
Is asking this of me
It’s not my spouse – Oh no!
He treats me like a queen

It’s me who asks myself
Yes, my funny little quirk
I pretend they’re his requests
Cuz it helps me do my work
