My Fifth Anniversary

©

Published: February 5, 2018

Today being my fifth wedding anniversary,
I wore that beautiful dress for him
The dress that couldn't fit me some time back.
I wore his favorite perfume and
Lit the candles for the perfect night.

Today being my fifth wedding anniversary,
I prepared the best recipe for him,
The recipe he always asked me to make.
I set the dining table and
Placed on it the most beautiful flowers.

Today being my fifth wedding anniversary,
I played the best music for him,
The music he now loved listening to.
I set the best playlist and
Wore my most beautiful dancing shoes.

Today being my fifth wedding anniversary,
My husband took no notice of it.
He just came in late without saying anything.
He didn't notice the change and,
He seemed to no notice me either.

Today being my fifth wedding anniversary,
My husband still couldn't notice my beauty.
He only noticed pounds of flesh I had gained,
The bruises on my hands,
And the scars that made me look old.

Today being my fifth wedding anniversary,
I could only pray he had eyes,
Eyes that saw the pounds made by my womb,
Eyes that saw my toiling,
And his beatings that I took and tolerated.

Today being my fifth wedding anniversary,
I could only sit down and wish.
If only he could see me as his woman,
A mother to his children and
One who has always stood by him.
