A Day In My Wife's Life

A bead in her eyes reflects
my restless years.
Her strained smile in lips
recalls her hopeful days.
Has my words still survive
my long diminshed soul? -
I may never know.
Will anyone tell her that all my love
has decayed to pain and scars
I have nothing left in me
Am impotent to deliver poems.
The bead rolls down
as my yet another day.

    This is the mark of true poetry- writing from your heart. Great job! You might want to reformat the title, though, as Ency Bearis commented on. It will reflect your poem more clearly.

    a very significant write...and well versed on poetic creativity....nice
    but something just to say how the title constructed...it shoud be
    A DAY IN MY WIFE'S LIFE - the apostrophe in S to make a singular
    if you want the plural meaning - (a lot of women) -should be WIVES

    Yes. This was written with much depth and sorrow. Quite impressively I might
    add. There are a lot of writers who try to write this well, but don't.
    I was much impressed by the clarity of meaning and brevity of this piece. Please
    continue writing and expressing thoughts in this very concise way.
