Let Her Be Woman

17 Dec

image

Let her dream, for she has loved too long,
and no mortal world shall e’er take her;
let her seem, for she has cried her song,
let nightmarish tide dare not wake her;
let her give, for she has all beauty within,
that no love may e’er take her breath;
let her live, for she has life yet to begin,
and let gods be bereft upon her death;
let her cry, for she has tears left to mend,
no sorrow is spared for her want of woe;
let her die, for she will arise in the end,
and by her death, all love may she know.

    I really enjoyed this piece, and heart will tell you I’m not a huge fan of rhyme. But I do love it when it is done well.

    Bravo, and thanks, heart, for sharing on G+ for me to find.
