111The other day Laura asked to borrow my mixer
to make the mayonnaise. I lent her a tongue twister.
Once, she also asked for a handful of salt.
Her meals got quite tasty with stories I told.
The day Laura fancied a cup of tea,
we sweetened the evening talking her and me.
She asked for my umbrella one winter morning, but instead
I offered tender words for her to shelter from the rain.
And when Laura needed me to change a light bulb,
I gave her secrets that turned her cheeks on.
But the day Laura asked me to give her my love,
my words spilled all over the floor.
