What Will Make Her Secure

What Will Make Her Secure?

The tears that have become her nightly doze of Sleep
Her antidote is a husband who CARES
The heavy burdens she carries alone make her Weep
Her supporting hand is a husband who is FAIR

The painful worries of infidelity begets the future to appear bleak
Her balm is a husband who exudes TRUST
The unconditional love unappreciated with a blow on the cheek
Her true worth is a husband whose character does NOT DISGUST

The absence of affection's blazing flames
Her yearning is a husband who sweeps her of her FEET
The verbal abuse that makes her spirit to feel lame
Her healing is a husband whose words are SWEET

The wishing of a family unit as a lone mother
Her bliss is a husband who never quit HOME
The constant hurt of second place to another
Her mind's comfort is a husband who does NOT ROAM

The burning desire to be admired like a Queen
Her thirst's quench is a husband who steps up as KING
The broken promises, that she has always seen
Her security now is a husband who upholds the vows of his wedding RING

    Terrific write Hussein. Easy to read, easy flow and an endearing message with cultural significance. If I may make a few suggestions - I hope you don't mind. In the 2nd line, I think the word should be "who" and not "whose". Also, I think in the 2nd to last stanza, "minds" should be possisive "mind's" and in the last stanza the same is true for "thirsts" - "thirst's". I enjoyed the poem and the message it convey's. Thanks for sharing.
