Love You Wife


I am curled in a ball,
Shivering with rage,
And he crouches in front of me,
His eyes saying all
That needs to be said.
He wants me to forgive him,
Forget he broke my dreams,
He wants to love me now,
But I don’t want to give him that chance,
No, not in million days.
Where was he?
When I cried for him?
Where was his love?
When his child died in me.
He has taken away everything,
And left me with useless nothings,
Now my heart burns in hate,
And he claims we are soul mates,
He reminds me of our vows
To love, cherish and obey,
I want to shout,
Long ago we parted our ways,
I don’t know why,
He claims to love me,
When it was only he
Who threw me out of his home?
Now that he has decided
He wants me in his life,
Am I to bow my head?
And play the dutiful wife.
He tells me I am beautiful,
And he is mesmerized by me,
Once upon a time,
For him I was ugly.
Why the drastic transformation,
Why the change of heart,
He tells me he wants a fresh start.
He is on his knees,
A ring in his hands,
He asks me to marry him,
And make him happiest man,
I look at the ring,
And I glance at his face,
His eyes are open,
Love staring out in spades,
He holds my hand,
And looks me in the eye,
Of all the things to do,
And all the things to say,
He says he loves me,
And I say it’s okay……………….

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
