The Mister Baked Me a Cake!

he
my sweet husband
who works many, many hours of each day
seven days of many weeks
who spends every moment he's not at work
making life easier for me
baked me a cake
a yellow cake with chocolate frosting
in the middle of the night
while i slept
with ingredients he'd bought earlier in the week
also while i was sleeping
 {i sleep a lot these days}
 he waited for the dishwasher to finish washing its load
unloaded the clean dishes
and loaded up the ones he'd dirtied
just so i wouldn't suspect anything
should i visit the kitchen in the night
which i did
to fetch a cup of water for a feverish boy
 he lit the candles as i walked out this morning
while he and little guy sang happy birthday
and buddy boy buried his head in a chair, all embarrassed like
{i think he thought the singing was for him}
 and we all had cake for breakfast
