Perfect wife
Perfect mother
Perfect life
Lived for another

Try’s so hard
To please them all
Often she pleases
None at all

All the little things
Go unnoticed
On what’s incomplete
They seem to focus

Love she shows
Hurt she conceals
Sadness inside
Often she feels

She misses the love
For once they had
The children she loves
Can make her mad

Filled with guilt
For voices raised
And child’s pictures
Never praised

Time alone needed
Or a little support
A helping hand
Is all that is sort

She’ll see them through
And never will rest
She is a miracle
Her family is blessed
