Yappy yappy!!! Women's day....
Oh dear Lord!!
You made me out of his ribs I heard,
Why? Were you as dormant as the man you had made before?
Did you not see that when we say we're tired,
we mean we're exhausted from doing work
be though it maybe housework.
But have you ever asked the man!! if he had brought clothes down ,
when it looked cloudy
You'd get only blunt, and clouded eye looks.
Next morning, if the shirt was missing,
'cos he had forgotten to bring the clothes inside out of the rain,
He blames the woman..
Did she bring the rain???
What were you doing up there??
When he asks for the cuppa every morning,
Do you forget the longing look in my eyes, each time I make the tea,
And i'm in faraway land, dreaming of a hand holding the cup of tea in front me??
I'm sure you'll say you forgot to add that small bit in his strong ribs.
Why did you let him think that he can think?
Oh God!!! each time I ask him to think of an answer to my problems,
He's in his own dreamworld, reading the newspaper...
oh yeah, nowadays he's found some new games to play on the psp too.
But the minute I relate an incident from my very tiring day,
He's out there, jumping and acting as if he's THE GURU!!
Did I ask him to solve it, ??
Why is it that the news should be read by him early morning,
When i'm the one who's answering all the General Knowledge questions posed by our kids?
What is it in the cereals, that makes him cringe, and always craves for the idlis and chutneys..
But when I long for that one oily vada, he says its not good for health
When I ask him , if I look fat, all I want him is to say yes!!
At least i'll have an excuse to go and huff and puff in the gym.
All you do is make him say " No , you look perfectly fine to me!! "
Now look what i've become...one fat store, nothing left for free :(
But why is it that when I say
he looks perfectly fine in his 'similar as yesterday's' blue striped shirt,
He changes a hundred shirts and then still thinks its not good enough?
Have you ever thought of the bridges you've tried building between us.
Those ones, that have to reach across
It fell short, of Lord!
Cos he had stepped out for his cigarette
and had forgotten to wait
His friends came along and made me smile,
knowing full well, that once they reached home they needed,
to have their bearings right with their own wives.
Oh My!! Did I tell you he needs to always unwind after a hard days job
Ever thought of what my house would be if I did the same.
Who would feed the hungry small stomachs
who always want the exotic, when their fathers are around
And if I say no!! I'm made to look like an extinct pig!
Why do my kids always want me to handle their homework,
their stomachs and their unfriendly classmates,
BUt when their father comes home, it is he who gets the
biggest shout, and the hugs and smothering kissess...
I'm not complaining, dear Lord!
Cos I know,
The minute, my foot is out of my door,
I get the call asking for the lost wallet,
or even where the kids milk is kept.
Yes!! I know that the calls are made to find the sugar which is right in front of the cabinet.
My little one calls to ask me if he can eat wafers before lunch
and the older always remember to call and tell me he's hopping over to his friends'
Even if the man takes his much needed break on the Sunday, Dear Lord!!
I still know, that you made my brains so wired, that if I were to rest that day
I'd feel as if i've lost out on one whole day of missed hugs, wet kisses
Crayons on carpets, and milk in the floor halls.
I'd long for the missed calls and also never want to read the paper
if it means...all I get and ever want is that one
Big grin and that one gleam in those eyes!!
I'm so lucky oh Lord!!
I'm so happy you made me a WOMAN!!
To all the women out here who drop in here and to all the men too, who make us feel special and also value our existence out here.
HAPPY WOMENS DAY!
HERE'S MY SPECIAL DEDICATION TO ALL OF YOU :)
