Nobody Cares!

Ah what a dreary existence is mine
Beds upon beds wait with linen in line

Ah what a dreary existence is mine
Beds upon beds wait with linen in line
Floors that need dusting and food to be made
Wish in another bright era I stayed

Nobody listens or sees what I do
Nobody hears all my plans that are new
Nobody shares my impossible goals
Nobody cares for me, no not a soul!

I am the wife that’s perpetually tired
Groaning, complaining, I wish that I’d died
Where has the laughter and happiness gone
Is it my fault that the home has gone wrong?

‘Old and decrepit’, I see it quite clear
They interrupt and depart, so uncouth
Where is respect and the care that is due
Is life worth living for me – I ask you?

Child, youth or adult, life should not be dark
Filled with no purpose, the prospects all stark
What is the remedy – let Me tell you
Find why you’re here and you’ll face life anew.
