There Was a Time When I Cleaned For You

Oh how could we forget the years,
 that I cleaned for you?
You know it was so important to me ,
to feel that you cared for me.
Oh how you proved you did not care,
when you had your holiday parties.
You may say ,what do you mean?
Well it is pretty clear to see,
you only wanted me here after the holiday bling.
Now since married into the family we sing a new tune.
Guess what this is one, that does not play that tune.
You may want to be socially correct ,but my life by
my heart connects.

Susan Wall Claim this poet

I am a born again Christian, I go to a church that preaches all the Bible. Some years ago you would call that kind of church a holy rolling church. I am very proud to be called a Christian. He saved from hell and gave me a new life. God saved my soul from hell. I am a mother, a stay at home house wife. I love to write and share with others what God has done for me. I write to cope with stress as well, it is my outlet. God has given me the gift to write. I want to make a difference to someone that may be hurting. Maybe my writings will lead someone to the Lord with my life experiences. God bless those who reads this. I am also known as the Dreamer with identifying myself to other people. I am just a sinner saved by grace. more…
