    Standing tall and massive
    Firm, strong and taller than the masses
    He covers me giving complete security
    Bearing ripe fruit that fulfills my every need
    Every day I’m presented with gifts of something new
    Filled up and left with a sweet taste like honeydew
    Savoring each bite
    reaching for the juiciest, primed kind
    With each delight are instant pleasure
    and a lingering rhythmic vibe
    Musical tones made by vibrations
    with each grasp feeling a height of elation
    An audience fully captivated
    by the delivery of this mission
    Feeling overwhelmed with this depiction
    but will never leave my position

    Ok... I can dig that. As a brother I will take these sentiments well to heart, hoping I can invoke such feelings in the woman I devote myself to.

    Wow, that left me feeling elated and warm even though the sky is overcast. You got a gift, Sister. Thanks for sharing it!

    One,

    Thank you Bro. Clyde, your warmth is always appreciated! And yes, Christian women can put a little something together too...we are awake and in the house, for real!

    This reads as if this were written for a women's conference or a women's convention ... and if it wasn't, it should have been written for such an audience. This was a beautiful write, worthy of a recital.
