A Good Woman

A Good Woman

A Poem by Gee
"

Just thoughts

"
I grew up with nothing,
no car, no holidays,
an absent father
a step father not worthy of the love of any woman
let alone my mother.
In the dark of night dreams came easily,
exotic countries
flash motors
palatial houses
all of the things to make a man happy,
or so I thought.

It was many years later
when married, comfortable, truly happy,
that it dawned on me
that these dreams mean nothing,
nothing at all,
without the unconditional love
of a woman who has agreed to let you share her life,
has gifted you a child,
and has accepted and loves you faults an' all.
It is only then that you realise,
that a life without love,
a true, enriching, all encompassing love,
will be a life lived unfilled, incomplete,
no matter the riches.....

A wise man, you.. and more than likely the reason why such a woman picked you from a garden and pressed you to her heart, Gee.
Surely tis how love's viewed: what gentles one is oily grasp to another, what strokes one heart is a bore to those that fail to dance to its beat.
You must have seen the best of the worst, then acted how a real many should:. found precious sanctuary and stayed there. This poem really touches me.

Thank you EmmaJ. The down side is that one day we will experience grief as deep as our love.,

You're welcome. Thanks i would appreciate that
Yes it makes, Very much!
Life without love is just like clock without its needles.
And above all, who can ever compete with the love of a Woman. Encapsulating all loves: of a daughter, of a mother, of a wife,
of a good woman. :)

loved it!

Thank you..
It makes absolute sense. I was more fortunate. I had a great family and married a great woman, even though it took me two attempts at that last part.
My first marriage was not so good, but it allowed me to truly be appreciative of my second.
