Watch the Grass Grow

You go to work

while I stare out the window,

you keep yourself busy

while I watch the grass grow.

You earn us money

while I think how to spend it,

you have a place in the world

while I feel like a misfit.

You never lose patience

while I never see the bright side,

a darkness has enveloped me

I can no longer hide.

Your kind words are said

with the intent to keep me strong

as I try to quell the fears

which have come along.

You don’t realise

you have saved my life

all those years ago

when you agreed to be my wife.
