A shower

She is fresh from the shower. She sits in front of the vanity mirror and wears a bathrobe and a towel wrapped around her wet hair. We are going out for the evening. I have viewed this scene countless times. I never tire of it.

We have been together for 32 years. Why she has loved and cared for me, despite all my flaws and faults, I will never know. When we return home and are in bed I will hold her until she falls asleep in my arms. I will linger beyond sleep for awhile, drink in her fragrance, and feel the rhythm of her breathing.
