She’s like a feather in the wind
Pressure blowing her to tears
I see the conflict in her eyes
I feel her anxiety, her fears
She puts herself second
Because that’s what mothers do
Always working hard and smiling
Cos she’s a daughter and lover too
She can’t do everything at once
Because she doesn’t have the time
Yet she tries her very best
As if failure is a crime
If I could help her then I would
But she’s determined not to fail
That strength can be a weakness
When her stress is off the scale
I wish she’d take a breather
Relax and take her time
So I’ll treat her like a princess
Next time she comes to mine
I’ll have flowers on the table
And dinner on the hob
And later in the bedroom
I’ll show her my big … TV?
Struggling for a word there, can you help? 🙂
That went kinda wrong somewhere didn’t it?
Different competing pressures act on people at a certain age, more so on women than men as generally they have more of an active role in dealing with their kids, ageing parents, keeping a job, maintaining a relationship.
As a guy it’s important to appreciate that and treat the girl when she has some time to give.
Treat her like a princess and let her forget everything else for a while.
The last thing the girl needs is more pressure than she has already.
