Loving a Strong Woman

Updated on May 9, 2019

I always thought you were strong
And now that I’m weak, I know it’s true
You say you love me, but also the world
How can I stand up to all of that?
What I see in you is the life I want to live
I can only pray when we are apart
Will you remember a man who wants your hand?
Every night we spend alone
Is a moon that someone failed to see
Our precious time is short
Can you understand why I want you here?
I feel the tears now
A thousand for each lost year
A picture of your beauty
A longing recovered from memory
You became what I knew all along
Loving you like that is only for the strong

        Yes, I've posted quite a bit over the years. Not sure how to explain it except to say I am compelled. Thank you again for all your kindness.

        Dear Mark, you are so regular in writing and posting your poems on hubpages. I think you must have composed thousands of such beautiful poems uptil now. That's great.

        You certainly know how to make someone speechless. I don't feel that way; it just seems to me as if we should all be able to say these things. I take the time to do it. It's supposed to be open raw honesty. That is the root of all my writing. I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read my posts and make such kind remarks. Thank you.
