Just a silly Housewife !!

At your service all day
Your conveniences, your comforts
Right from day’s first ray
But wait, she doesn’t manage office life
After all, she is just a silly housewife

Running the entire household
Things ready at their place
Just the way you’ve told
But she doesn’t face the clients
After all, she is just a silly housewife

Knowing your taste
Aware of what you hate
Food, clothes and your toothpaste
But she needn’t fulfill the March deadlines
After all, she is just a silly housewife

Caring when you are down with flu
Enwrapping you with her warmth
Pumping when you’re lost without clue
But she doesn’t hear boss’s musical voice
After all, she is just a silly housewife

Smiles when you return
Stories of your day patiently she listens
Dishes of your choice she will arduously churn
But she doesn’t know what is travelling crowded like
After all, she is just a silly housewife

Your happiness is her priority
Compensation is your smile
Does everything to the best of her ability
But she doesn’t know the work life strife
After all, she is just a silly housewife

Treat her, mistreat her
Just the way you like
After all
She is just a silly housewife !!

  3. So true, most of the house wife's are taken for granted. They dedicate their life to the family, in return we need to at least love and respect them !
    good post !

  7. It is really a wonderful poem. The housewife is supposed to be perfect in every thing, even if she is a working woman and has to struggle at two fronts.

  23. Well , the story of most house-wives who are taken granted by everyone in the house. But the tables will be turned when the same silly , simple housewife stands for her rights and refuses to be taken for granted.Nowadays stay-at-home-wives has become smarter. :)

  27. It is not just a housewife; a combination of many things. I remember, when my nephew was joining LKG, he asked me what should I say if my would be principal ask me what is your mother doing. Should I say housewife? I said no... say, she is a home maker and he asked me the difference between home maker and housewife. After I explained the differences, he was very happy and said since then it is home maker :)

    Lovely and touchy post...

    1. Yes, home maker is the new word given to them. I hope more people respect the word and the meaning behind it. Thank you for visiting :)
