Don'T Take Her For Granted - Poem by Gordon Whittaker

She will care for you throughout your life.
She cooks, washes and irons your clothes,
and does a thousand other chores.

So when you come home from work feeling blue,
just think of the menial tasks your wife had to do.
She hardly complains, takes it all in her stride,
she does her duty with a certain amount of pride.

A little gratitude from you would not go amiss,
neither would a tender loving kiss.
Take her out, wine and dine her in a romantic way,
whisper those sweet words she loves to hear you say.

When she was at the alter and said ' I do ',
did you think those two little words meant to become a slave
to you?
Put the magic back into her life
and forget your minor troubles and strife.

    Good grief Gordon. You'll have women flocking to your feet with this sort of notion. I would be very careful. Nevertheless very good. (Report) Reply

    I'd like my husband to read this one at the moment Gordon, he's not well, and I think when men are not well they forget how much running around you have to do for them. I'm exhausted as he's been under the weather for some months. A great poem on behalf of women everywhere. You've made a friend for life here. Love Ernestine XXX (Report) Reply
