A Drunk Husband

A Drunk Husband

came home very late at night
drunk and could not see light

he fell down a broke his arm
that was the last day he caused harm

end of illtreatment to his beautiful wife
it was the end of family strife

he decided to quit alcohol
because he knew how painful it was, to fall

no more does he drink and roughly play
now he goes to Church to pray

he is now a wife's favourite husband
he is both a husband and friend

no more causing pain
but loving again and again.

Sadly this is the root cause of many family problems - Alcohol! Let us hope some people who read your poem may take heed and consider their failings, D.P. One lives in hope. My best regards! :) john

Alcohol has destroyed families and relationships. Some people do not understand that alcohol is for socialization not to be a cause of destruction in our society. Thank you very much once again. :)

Sadly such things happen. Not all of these scenarios end happily, but in your poem we see a happy ending, I'm glad to say. Let's hope many other real situations reach a good ending too.

Thank you very much Mr Robert, I am cognizant of such scenarios with a happy end but also on the other hand there are those that end unhappily. Thank you for reading my poem.
