If You Can...


If you can, just tell me what would you do
If you were in my shoes and I was you
Would you wake up each day
And promise yourself that all would be fine?
Would you walk to a place you do not wish to go
And tell yourself, you would still do it -
For that is what made me happy?



If you can, just tell me what would you do
If you were in my shoes and I was you
Would you smile the entire day
Hide all your worries and fears
For all I want to see when I return home
Is a face glowing with happiness?
Would you massage my shoulders
Ask me how was my day
Would you care to listen -
Even if you had something important to do?

If you can, just tell me what would you do
If you were in my shoes and I was you
Would you strive all day long
To hear one word of appreciation
Would you give in your everything
To save the relationship that is important only for you?

If you can, just tell me what would you do
If you were in my shoes and I was you!
When you have the answer,
Just look outside, I am waiting for you on the porch
Either come and hand me my bag
Or take me in your arms



A letter from a frustrated wife to her husband
A last attempt to save the relationship, A hope that he would understand
