    With thoughts
    undressed,
    she exposed
    her burden.

    As He gave His
    shoulders to her,
    they became
    her precious altar.

    Oh how her heart swelled,
    as her soul wailed.
    Her tears flowed
    and flowed
    As great waters,
    down His back.

    Moved by
    her tears,
    He stood and
    He carried her
    for life.

    Just as she was about
    to fall underneath
    her struggles,
    He upheld her with
    a great strength and
    a great love.

    She passionately
    embraced Him and
    they became one;
    and together,
    they stood
    against the winds.

    this filled me with a surge of warmth that cannot be adequately described.

    So I'll just say,

    "thank you" this morning.

    Thank You Poets

    A gentle spirit of intimacy felled (yes, I confessed I am one of those Jesus fanatics) ever so sweetly upon me as I was writing this one. I can't help myself. In spite of my imperfections, He carries me for life. For this, I am so greatful that together, we stand against the winds.

    Gee...This whole concept seems so simple, yet it is so awesome in what it can mean for a soul, just too much emotion to digest at once.

    In the past, I was always the one all the weight upon my shoulders, Can't wait to find a true love to carry me like you spoke of in this poem.

    Lovin this one

    Thanks for bringing this back along with your kind words, Watzinaname. I had forgotten that I'd posted this one back in 2001. Gosh...I read it 4 times today.


    Thank you Nita. I pray that you discover a man such as this. They are definitely out there if you're searching in the right places. Meanwhile, you will find complete satisfaction in the one whom I was speaking of at the time I wrote this poem...Jesus.

    {He is the lover of my soul.}
