“I, Woman” ~A poem by Linda Willows

I, Woman, do not slumber,
ne’r do dream of valleys deep,
Nor Soft caress or tender weep…
This heart alone, it cannot sleep.
Chamber only for the one;
the oft reflections not outdone.
Not by ten thousand nights less sun
Would comfort bind, restore; just one…

I, Woman do bleed and cut,
I feel too much; perhaps it all.
Does this need to be my fall?
Let me sleep, God Grace be kind,
I offer thee this one rewind.
Make me Woman tender, good.
Do let my Heart love as it should.
Grant that I may Feel through Soul,
And take My First, each day, extolled.

  3. Woman, not girl, the longing to regain that innocence, to hold again the sweetness on new love. No, it is not the hearts failing, rather the hearts unfolding. I read once that 10,000 was the largest number the brain could imagine and grasp. All those nights are just one in the land of the soul, which returns her grace… She is divine… I often ask – when did God become a man?

    1. such beauty and grace in your words, Peter. I love the understanding that you offer that it is the “heart’s Unfolding rather than the Heart’s failing”, so beautiful. Thank you

  4. What a fabulous image. I very much connected to this piece Linda. It’s beautiful and I am one of those who perhaps ‘feels too much’ ~ though as you so eloquently express here — would not want to loose that sensitivity for I know it’s also a blessing, a gift and my connection to the Divine. Much Love dear one ~ always appreciate your spiritual wisdom and inspired words. ~ Robyn
