Poem about the music that I can play but my wife cannot due to illness

I Feel I am a Traitor

I feel I am a traitor;
I can sing my songs,
Play my music,
But my beloved cannot.
Every time I am asked
To sing,
Or to play,
The thought comes,
Should I do it
As my love cannot.
All her life
She has been singing,
Or has been playing,
But now the ills of her body
Stop her doing that
Which was part of her life,
And I feel bad
As I can do these things.
She was so much better
Than I will ever be.
I ask her if I should stop,
But she always says no.
It does not help
The way I feel,
I feel I am a traitor.

I have been writing poetry for a few years now and use it as a release for all types of feelings. I do not follow any set rules poetry as I find I cannot get the feeling correct if I use the rules.
