Why Do You Smile ?

At night, you sleep with me.
In the morning, you prepare breakfast for me.
After I go to my office
you send lunch for me.

In the evening, without fail,
I take you out for a walk.
If we come across a friend
I introduce you to him,
'Meet my wife'.

Then you smile.
Why do you smile ?
Tell me honestly,
Why do you smile ?
