You desperate wounded look

whatís brought you to her face?

I canít explain her actions,

wonít someone plead my case?

 

For once again Iíve hurt her,

cut her deeply, Lord knows how.

Sheís brooding oíer her secret wound;

I canít speak with her now.

 

Why canít he see within my soul

and sense my simple needs,

to nourish me with attentiveness

as his own flesh he so feeds;

 

To ask me whatís important

and acknowledge my attempt

to make his home a castle?

On my love he pours contempt.

 

My children; you must understand

a woman has her way

to meet her husbandís deepest needs:

to honor and obey.

 

But men so need reminding

whatís important in her life,

that nine times in My Word I say,

"Husband, love your wife."

 

Husband, give yourself to her

the expanse of your heart;

for how can she submit to one

she only owns in part?
