Those Who Wait

 

 

Some shrug off the mundane of life

To conquer nature in her glory

Others escape through Their accounts

But they tell not all the story

 

What of those who wait at home

The daughter, wife or mother?

The shackles cast aside by one

Weigh heavy on another

      Thank you, Michael.
      I wrote that one when a friend of mine was in a bit of a state because her hubby had gone off hillwalking alone. When the weather turned bad and he hadn’t called her, she started to worry.

    “The shackles cast aside by one – Weigh heavy on another”

    I like that phrasing. I’ve read this several times and each time find different stories in the words. I find it fascinating that your inspiration for the poem told a completely different story to me.xx
