This Woman’s Work | Poem
Elizabeth
__________
Of all the things we should have been, we should have been You & Me; ourselves, through thick and thin and living like this for them to see. But the wind turned from North to South and the rains fell sideways through time and space; what a range we had to climb and what a force we had to face.
Nothing natural grows from neutral grounds, behold the fire that grew us under where roots once were found; their remains of hollow serpents meander through the dust, leaving you as a ghost who cried aloud and danced; the one who could not be hushed.
A wayward man who spent his life swooning over her; hoping that through her soul, his pain would tumble down to heaven, where at once he would find the cure. To dance with her fragrance that sifted through this space; the air that choked his demons that drew lines ’round the bend, as if traced.
….
Of all the things we should have been, we should have been You & Me; a pair that traced our feet dancing on the roots that beared our name-to-be. Of all the things we should have been, we should have been laying side by side on this lonely lawn as one; a trio that danced the ghosts from hell and released our souls, now gone.

Lyrics
Pray God you can cope
I’ll stand outside
This woman’s work
This woman’s world
Ooooh it’s hard on a man
Now his part is over
Now starts the craft of the Father
I know you’ve got a little life in you left
I know you’ve got a lot of strength left
I know you’ve got a little life in you yet
I know you’ve got a lot of strength left
I should be crying but I just can’t let it show
I should be hoping but I can’t stop thinking
All the things we should’ve said that I never said
All the things we should have done that we never did
All the things we should have given but I didn’t
Oh darling make it go
Make it go away
Give me these moments
Give them back to me
Give me that little kiss
Give me your talking hands
Give me your hand baby
(I know you have a lot of strength left)
Give me your pretty hand
(I know you have a little life in you yet)
Ooh you have a lot of strength
(I know you have a lot of strength left)
My loved child
(I know you have a little life in you yet)
Whatever you need baby
(I know you have a lot of strength left)
Give me your hand
(I know you have a little life in you yet)
Give me your hand
(I know you have a lot of strength left)
Oh I should be crying but I just can’t let it go
I should be hoping but I can’t stop
Thinking and thinking and thinking
Of all the things we should’ve said that we never said
And all the things we should have done that we never did
All the things that you wanted from me
All the things that you needed from me
All the things I should have given but I didn’t
Oh darling make it go
Just make it go away
