Coldness on Warm Nights

Once wished to see my kid run
around the house, with so much fun;
For I had most of things I need
But growing one was off speed.

Didn't get tired, for I'm not old
Kept trying but felt now he was cold
Asked myself, 'has he been tired?'
heard no words to light the fire.

Marriage took place the right time;
Romance yet wouldn't have to expire;
Porn should be kept aside
but to make warm, I set my eyes.

Have I become ugly or dull?
Did I miss caring about his needs?
Why am I hurting? Can anything ease this?
I need him here whenever he's here.

was in pain, he saw my crying
Heart's tearing apart, but heard him saying
I love you always, my lovely wife
I'm sorry I hurt you, we'll heal our life.

He's now trying and I'm staying
don't know when, don't know how
but God surely heard me asking
Maybe we just need to hold on for now.
