Wife's Prayer Answered

Rating: 4.9
I have fallen, I am bleeding
Hold me like you always do
Wipe my tears, make me laugh
Tell me “how much I mean to you”

Sit with me under the stars
Sing me the song of love
Let nothing come between us
You and me and God above

And why for this day
I am nothing to you
Where has the love gone?
After all that we have been through

And why for this day
Your eyes so deep
Speak to me nothing
With me they do not weep?

And I wondered
Will it remain for eternity?
Till the last ball
Will you stare at TV?

Days of silence
Forever will I be tortured?
India is knocked out!
A wife’s prayer been answered.

[**for wives who had to live with TV glued husband all day, yesterday, India is knocked out of 'Champions league' more 'Dear-Its-India's -Match-on TV' for me and my husband is all mine ;)

****No offence- I love to see India winning the matches! ! But sometime you are very selfish, only sometime. ;) ]

A lovely poem, well articulated and penned with insight. I like the conviction of the poet on the issue, as wives have to endure a dwindle in bliss as a result of sport loving husbands mood swings during important sporting tournaments. A nice piece indeed. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem. MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.

First of all, I guess the wife in ur poem is a Tvaholic, who maintains her merriage by watching tv with her husband...and yet, she's also longing for the passionate love she's ever experienced, she treasured the time she spent with her love.she desperately wants to enrich her merriage, not only the soap opears, but also another things they will share together! ! anyway this's really a good poem
