I Made Her Cry

I made her cry today
  with tomorrows promises
promised her just the other day.
  ‘So why does she weep, the missus?’

Her tearful eyes are for
  the many disappointments
borne a sadden heart to harbor
  caused by me to a great extent.

Too many, too often, designed
  dreams that I had painted for her
leaving to wither on the vine;
  she ceased to dream altogether.

“Honey, is there any reason
  for your tears, something I had said?”
“It’s nothing; drink your coffee, hon.
  Do you want whole wheat or rye bread?”
