I would still be married if...

15 May 2012, 10:00

I would still be married today if my husband had heeded these words. Three years ago I penned this poem during a dark phase of our marriage, and when I showed it to my husband, he laughed, scoffed and mocked it, without even absorbing the words. Feeling rather disillusioned, I shelved my book of poems, but decided to dust off the cobwebs and share this one today. It will warm my heart, if I manage to inspire just a few men to not take their wives for granted, and help air the heartache that so many of us go through. 



Come back to me…


Your lauded love was temporary

you make money mandatory.

Blinded by your name in the sky

you lost my love in your eye.

Forever frolicking in frivolous fame

Do you remember my name?


Your constant search for fiscal gain 

has transgressed love to pain.

You selfishly surrender to success

and substitute my loving caress.

You hastily run rank's race

Have you forgotten my face?


Forfeit the pretentious pecuniary path

and follow the sincere sound of my heart.

Make our altruistic love a permanent fee

and courageously come back to me...
