What I Gave
What I gave to him were love, patience and
my full support. From the very start,
those were the things I always felt
that a wife should give her man,
believing a good wife
could expect the same
from her spouse as
what she had
nor marriage is
fair. His angry words
have filled me with despair.
Little things that mean so much
to me are not on his radar.
He voices his love, but more often,
I would much rather see it with my eyes.
