Will You Still Love Me


On days when I don’t go the parlor

Because I had been balancing your budget,

And my hair is not so soft, nor is my skin

Will you love me the way you always did?

When my hands are a bit scrubby

Since I do the dishes after our meals.

When I get sunburns while buying grocery

Will you love me the way you always did?

When my eyes are no longer so seducing

Since they haven’t slept due to your mom’s health

And some days I am not able to cook you a meal

Will you love me the way you always did?

When my body is no longer toned & I am flabby

since I brought in this world our greatest joy

& on days when you seem more fit & fine

Will you love me the way you always did?

When I become busy in bringing up our kids

& at times I can’t be with you much time

When I miss your parties due to kid’s exam

Will you love me the way you always did?

When at last the crumbles of my dress

begin to show up on my cheeks & lips

When I become short because I stoop

Will you love me the way you always did?

When I find it hard to hear what you say

& I can’t give you a tight hug when you’re down

Will still my love suffice for all your needs?

& will you still love me the way you always did?
