Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled Eggs

Fresh from pushing our muscles to new limits
We both had nothing left to give
But the nurturer within her
Compelled her to give just a bit more

A quick, meager feast hastily fashioned
With great care and casualness, for her
It must be self-evident that mushrooms,
Spinach and bacon crumbles
Are my favorite modifiers

And not too much cheese, as I’m a finicky one
Oh, and a dash of cayenne pepper just for kicks
See, she remembered my affinity for
Spicy foods, because she just does

Without my uttering a single grunt, she knew
Though every bit as exhausted as I, she acted
Though I didn’t even ask, 
She knew and she acted on my behalf

Is it just her nature?

I think it might be just a bit more
