I sought to follow a recipe
to make what would bring joy to me.
At first I added too much sweetener,
next effort, too many wanted a taste too,
tried expensive store bought, pre-made,
too cookie cutter, too big a name.
Lastly, I sought to find a recipe,
and bake what would be right for me,
the perfect flavor of smart and sweet,
attractive to him and he’s attractive to me.
Although it is too soon to call
I pray that events will be evident to all,
and fill my need for sustenance,
a working relationship for both of us.
