I Am the Wife by Hugh Dysart

I am the wife of a broken man,

fed his family from cradle to grave

Toiled the mines, with back and hands,

I’ve watched his candle light fade

 

I am the wife of a broken man,

spent his life in the black and cold

Youth passed, fingers through sand,

digging for another man’s gold.

 

The children sing,

one, two, three, Lord

There’s a broken man,

at my kitchen door

Four, five, six, seven,

six feet in a hole,

his soul’s in heaven

 

I am the wife of a broken man,

watched his back bend and break

Tall and straight, or so it began,

how much more can one man take?

 

I am the wife of a broken man,

watched him grow beaten and old

Life passed, fingers through sand,

digging for another man’s gold.

 

The children sing,

one, two, three, Lord

 There’s a broken man,

at my kitchen door

Four, five, six, seven,

six feet in a hole,

his soul’s in heaven.
