To My Wife

Dedication

To my wife
Who gave me the idea
Encouraged me to write
Cleaned out the study
Kept the children quiet
Cooked my meals
Washed the dishes
Did my washing
Read the first draft
Persuaded me back into the study
Assured me I was talented
Never doubted I had something to say
Typed the first draft
Paid  the bills
Did the shopping
Made suggestions for draft two
Phoned my mother
Typed draft two
Visited my dying father
Took the children to school
Went to work
Left me food
Took my phone calls
Stimulated
Listened
Suggested
Reassured
Praised
Typed the final draft
And put my name on it.
To my husband
Without whom
I would have written
