"I Would Rather"
A Poem for My Husband
I would rather wake up beside you at home,
than awaken in the finest hotel anywhere in the world, without you.
I would rather eat peanut butter and jelly with you
than dine in the most critically acclaimed restaurant
in town, without you.
I would rather live penniless with you
than wealthy without you.
I would rather spend a day with you in the most boring or dangerous place in the world,
than live out my day in the most beautiful or safe of surroundings.
I would rather snuggle up with you on the couch and listen to the rain all day
than go on an all-expenses paid luxurious vacation without you.
I would rather be your wife,
than anyone else's.
