Where, oh where, were you tonight?

Why was I working all by myself?
I had to fix dinner and get to a meeting
I made a mess, dear, and phht I was gone…

Sometimes, when I get busy
It may seem that my consciousness
Does not include the home environment
Or surroundings or my close relationships

Yet, my heart is always filled
With loving appreciation and gratitude
for those closest to me
