    No way a measurement of me testing my
    Family headship,
    But
    As powerful as me calling on your name
    In which,
    Over years,
    Without a question to me you came,
    Will be the urge for she tonight
    To make soup for me.

    Because
    Soup around our place it is not just used to
    Pleasure depths that where once starving,
    But is used,
    Like a time refined art,
    To stir our satisfaction...

    Satisfaction almost as satisfying as finding that last dumpling,
    Is the way that's she captures
    That true
    Fused family essence -
    Her love, her soul -
    In providing
    Provisions of my life's daily needs.

    Unconditional has tonight,
    Like the pass nights of our marriage in Ruby's light,
    Formed its shape in the likeness of she.

    So,
    When the comfort of those
    Aromas...
    That
    Rap against my minds senses as I
    Step in from the world's cold embrace,
    Alert me as she lets me know...
    I'm home.

    And for this,
    I will always be in debt to you
    Because the way that you make soup
    Perfectly for me will always be
    So beautiful.

    Loved the use of "soup", both as a metaphor and in practice, the word conjurs up such homey images. It is clear that this lady nourishes you, in every way you need to be fed. The warmth was felt in this piece, as well as your appreciation of her.

    Hi waynethomas
    What a wonderful way to describe the depth of one feeling
    Soup is indeed good for the body and the soul.
    Wonderful poem
