The Desires In A Woman's Heart

Recommended Posts

If a woman's heart be searched deep,
By surprise a man may be caught
All the desires she ever veils
Would have never been in his thoughts..

The desire to be pure and grand
For her Creator be of use:
That no worldly treat can allure
Her soul's enchained sight at the Cross.

The desire to live free but chaste;
To know when to contend and cry
And learn to be brave yet fragile
On herself and others rely.

The desire to be of wisdom-
A woman of a rewarding life..
Then to cease living for her own
To be a mother and a wife.

The desire to love and be loved
Until beauty fades and life ends:
One man's sweet kisses to taste,
By strong arms be gently held..

There are far more precious desires
A woman just hides in her heart-
Would a man be man enough
And be ardent his search to start?

I just wanted to share this poem. I wrote it when I was too young to realise that "A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle". I find my ideas in this poem still prevailing over me, except that I was wrong to think (all) women desire or need to be loved by a man. As a Christian, now I'm convinced that even if I get married or not, my life has a sure happy ending in Christ.
