Gathering Dust

From dawn to dusk 
she cleans and cleans
till everything in her home
has acquired a sheen

With a hope in heart
she waits and waits 
for the one she loves
to come home at eight

Alone for dinner
She just sits in the chair 
cobwebs in her head 
and flowers in her hair 
...gathering dust

    You’ve captured so much sadness and truth into a few lines, your words make us feel the sorrow and pain of false hopes. Emile.

    I like how you put that added meaning of it in. Waiting and waiting, gathering dust. Cute little rhyming poem.
