love
I look at your face 
pale and Gray
you were alright before
But not today?
The sun didn't shine
as it did before
you were cold and dark
Walking out the door!
We did not fight
as I recall
you slept in my arms
And looked so small.
You were quietly resigned
walking hand in hand
till we got to the house
Help me understand!
What goes through your mind?
When you stare into space
at least let me in
if this is the case
Your eyes tell a story
lost in your head
fear is behind them
When you come to bed!
Whatever troubles you
I need to know
there's no time for guesswork
Or perhaps I will go.
Is it because of the baby?
Don't you love our child?
You used to be spontaneous
Romantically wild.
But now you cry for ages
and cannot cope by day
I listen to the Mothers
And all they have to say.
It is normal to feel low
after the trauma you have had
giving birth to our son wasn't easy
In fact, it was sad.
But that was seven months ago
and still you freak out at him
your patience at an all-time low
Life is looking grim.
We need to see a Doctor
you cannot go on like this
I cannot even come near you
To give you a loving kiss.
Darling you know I love you
this is a partnership after all
but to see you in this state of mind
You're heading for a fall.
With patience and consideration
we will get through this quick
councillors helping as well as the doc
Will hopefully do the trick.
Here we are five months passed
you are bouncing and full of health
our son is thriving and so are we
Worth more to me than wealth.
