Sweetest Passion





I gaze as the moon shimmers across his naked body
lost in the thought of who he is
and how blessed I am he’s in my life,
And how it is this passion is
hotter than it was in the beginning.
This man lying in my bed
emanating strength and power
boldly going where no man has gone before
taking a chance on me and
loving me totally, unconditionally, wholly.

Oh! Those who have no clue
and those who mock the ties that bind
and those who say their love is real
without those little pieces of paper.

It is far easier to cohabitate than it is to
swear eternal allegiance before God,
mean it by fighting for it,
tearing out those little things
that work to destroy forever.

Hah! You fool yourself and you do not know
the passions that come from total
and complete
founded on a Word, His Word,
far stronger than even the sweetest “I love you but…”

You can not know
what you have not known
and I do,
I do
have compassion for you.

One night a couple of years ago, I couldn’t sleep.  The moon was filtering through the mini-blinds as I lay in bed, propped up on my elbow, gazing at this man who loves me so passionately.  There is so much fire and craving, adoration and romance that he has brought into my life.  I was so overwhelmed by him, his complete and utter love for me, and what he’s given to me, that I had to get up and write.  This is my relationship and in no way is meant to offend those who do not believe this way.

  1. Oh, Nan – never apologize for Kingdom things – and consecrated love is a passionate thing blessed by God! It is a shame the world tries to take something, this gift from God and turn it into something so not of God!

    Keep loving unabashadly!

  2. I wouldn’t wish divorce on anyone. But after you’ve gone through it, as you know, marriage becomes such a sacred thing not to be taken lightly. It is forever. Hooray for amazing men who love us into believing forever is not only possible but exciting!!

  3. I was more concerned about me not being enough for you since I felt I lacked in so many areas. Together we have grown into what was only once dreams but is now reality – making life an adventure.

    You are the damsel I always dreamed about as I saw myself going on quest to rescue someone from dragons. What I did not realize at the time was that I thought I was rescuing you but in reality you were rescuing me. You brushed me off and cleaned me up and shined my armour. You must have seen right through the rough exterior and walls nobody else was able to penetrate. You saw something special in me as I saw something special in you. Thank you.

    1. I’m still trying to figure out how you saw so much behind the layers and walls I put up. You are more than enough. You are my strength when I’m weak. You are my support when I feel less than confident. Anything you think you lack? Not in my world. Thank you back.

  4. Another uplifting blog that makes me smile. I too like my doors opened and will stand there and wait for it to happen and it does. I love the Honey Mooners too. Thanks for the inspiring notes. You will be a Star one day if you already aren’t. :0)

    1. Hi Miss Jan, thanks for stopping by. Your support means a lot but pshaw on that star stuff (smile)!!

  5. Whew.. is it hot in here or is it you..?? Great post, as always. You’re such a romantic. And a talent! Every time I come here it’s a new side of you. Lot’s of fun.. Keri

  6. Nan, this is an amazing poem. You express yourself so clearly and openly. I loved this poem and what it stands for.

  7. I still get that thrill when I see him coming up that hill (or in the garage door)! My heart beats a little faster. I am blessed beyond measure to have my husband.

  8. Oh I do have a clue, thank goodness. Won’t go into details. I know how this kind of love and passion feels. I am fortunate enough to have had this in my lifetime. So many can’t say that and it is sad.
