Selfless Beauty

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Me and my Angel

Me and my Angel

Selfless Beauty

There she goes, hustling away on making someone happy

A soul of heaven, a spirit of beauty

She places her own needs at the backburner to help others

Just like the messiah did for his people

She smiles outside but has deep pain within

Her Anxiety and uncertainty of her own self, not comfortable in her skin

She has a family, children who she loves and cares for dearly

Spending all she has on them, taking care of herself barely

She has a husband, who loves her very much

But often times a miserable chum, getting frustrated over little stuff

She supports him and he does her

Selfless beauty, living in a selfish world.

She works nine to five, in a job that cares little about her needs

But she does her best in order to achieve.

She cries a lonely cry and seldom receives comfort from any

But her heart is of gold, her thoughts righteous and steady

She is my queen, my support, my strength when i am in need

She is a selfless angel indeed.

Where have you been, Clive? I have missed you. I think this is a very poem, and if sure speaks of your love for each other.

Your wife has a beautiful smile. Have a good week, Clive.

This is a heartfelt piece of poetry, honoring the woman you love. I love the picture. Good to see you writing again.

This is exceptionally beautiful! Yet you hint that 'she cries a lonely cry.' So continue to tell her what you are telling us and turn up with unexpected roses. Each soul is God Itself and women are the closest to the embodiment of sacrifice.

Love your piece! - Lantern
