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.....

True Love is very important and Mother's Love is unconditional

Thank you Roxanne
yes, perfect sense...we often dream of things...and especially if we had none of that when we were younger....but having all that, even later in life means not a damn thing, unless we have love...
my mom used to always ask me..."don't you want to have things?"
my response was always...no, not really...friends are more important.....just ask George Bailey...

From the film ?? Thanks Jacob
The line 'let alone my mother' speaks volumes Gee.
It's not for me to tell you how rare this love you've found is...for two erstwhile 'strangers' in this life...because you have written it large and loud and clear here.
I read the story of the first UK Lottery rollover winner (1994, 17 million) and how he lost his love and died in drink and obscurity. So sad.
Brilliant loving homage Gee.

Lottery is a tax on the stooopid. You won the best prize mate.
totally makes sense.
people's definition of 'having it all' is too often misguided by material things. by my definition, you have it all. lucky b*****d. :)

Meaningless ! Life is Meaningless without a 'Good Woman'. This is a poem that summarized life & achievement in a nutshell. It's simple & straight to the point.

Great sense Gee! Honest, heart-felt, eloquent poem. From hard past to grateful present and testimony to the healing power of a woman's love. Made me cry. Beautifully written. Kudos!
