You desperate wounded look

what�s brought you to her face?

I can�t explain her actions,

won�t someone plead my case?


For once again I�ve hurt her,

cut her deeply, Lord knows how.

She�s brooding o�er her secret wound;

I can�t speak with her now.


Why can�t 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 what�s 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 husband�s deepest needs:

to honor and obey.


But men so need reminding

what�s 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?
