This I Believe

I believe in the Tuesdays

and Wednesdays of life,

the tuna sandwish lunches

and TV after dinner.

I believe in coffee with hot milk

and peanut butter toast,

Rose wine in summer

and Burgundy in winter.

I am not in love with holidays,

birthdays–nothing special–

and weekends are just days

numbered six and seven,

though my love

dozing over TV golf

while I work the Sunday puzzle

might be all I need of life

and all I ask of heaven.
