I was answering a friend on Facebook a few moments ago, checked on my wife’s profile, and this sudden muse rested on my sunburnt shoulders and whispered in my ears.
The Woman of My Dreams
by J. Randal Matheny © 2008
The woman of my dreams sleeps by my side,
Her breathing falls and rises in her breast.
I love her more than when she was my bride;
In every up and down of life God blessed
Our union, with the high or ebbing tide.
Now done with daily work, her time for sleep,
I pray the Lord my loving wife to keep.
