Options Open

He wants a wife, but not a bride.
He says he wants her at his side,
yet cannot bear to full commit;
his options open, the size of it.
She cooks his meal and washes clothes,
goes out to work, provides the most,
has little time for own endeavours,
hopes this way won’t last forever.
But will she wait for heart to break,
when another his love doth take,
or loose the chains that bind her tight
set free her wings to win the fight.
