What you see is
A cold shoulder and the light turned off when you come upstairs
Dishes in the sink, dust, piles of washing
Another empty bottle
A scratch on the car
The mistakes I make and
The things I haven’t done
What you get is
Fed, clothed, clean, educated and entertained, corrected and comforted and loved.
That keeps us warm and safe, fit for purpose
Who’s putting herself to one side, for you, for them
What you get is everything.
