I sleep when our baby sleeps,
Whether it’s two or four in the morning,
I cuddle the baby in another room,
So that her cries don’t ruin your sleep.
I wake up an hour before you wake up,
Whether I had only two or three hours of sleep,
Preparing breakfast in sleepy state,
So you have a healthy start and good day.
I wash your clothes and iron them,
Whether I am tired or weak,
Get your clothes ready for your meetings,
So your meetings are wonderful and positive.
I prepare the dinner of your choice,
Whether you have eaten with your friends or not,
Waiting till you come late at night,
So that all your demands and needs are fulfilled for the day.
I do this and I do that.
Never asking for what you did,
Never complaining about what I don’t have,
Never argued for what I disliked,
Never cribbing nor demanding.
All I wanted was little time and love,
Love which made me do all what you wanted,
Love from you to fill me with happiness and togetherness,
Love from you which kept me going.
But all I got was,
Ignorance for sacrifices I did,
Beatings for not completing a thing on time,
Harsh words for asking about your day at work.
You returned my love,
In wounds of blood and pain,
In wounds of grief and loneliness,
Destroying all I felt and all I thought.
But I know one thing for sure,
That I am at loss
For never getting back the love I gave,
But the major loss is of your my husband,
Because you never valued the woman who loved you the most.
