...Janet's Apple Of Her Eyes - Poem by RIC BASTASA

all her life janet
has devoted all her time
to the apple of
her eye


on her wedding day as i remembered
it clearly
her mother cried
her father did not attend it
for the man that she married
has remained to be
unacceptable to their family
of wealth and comfort

love is hard-headed and it always
follows the reasons of the heart
like the way janet finds her way
towards this mess

for she loves her man, and husband
above all
and now that she has a son, back to
square one
janet denies herself of the luxuries
that would have been showered on
her

they all think that she had chosen
misery rather than bliss
that she picks up pain rather than
joy
that she had taken the wrong direction
in her life
that she is wrong and a complete
failure

but no, Janet thinks otherwise
as she looks at the apple of her eyes
now

her son, her one and only son
the fruit of her love
the joys of all her labors
the reason of her living.
