Are You A Wife? - Poem by Deidre Dixon
You say you want to be with me for life.
Well, I have a few questions for you and some food for thought, too.
Are you a wife?
According to the Word that’s who I should be looking for.
A woman of Wisdom, Integrity, Favor and Esteem - all qualities Proverbs records.
Are you a help meet?
Since Genesis says that is what a wife was meant to be.
Someone who will Worship, Intercede, Fight in the Spirit and Edify me.
You say you want to be my wife, but do you understand what this means?
Since I will be responsible for you, you will have to take my name and your father’s you’ll have to leave.
I’m not looking for just any woman, a girlfriend or a tramp
If that’s who I wanted, I could go anywhere to get that
I’m looking for someone I can honor and respect
Not someone who when I speak into her life she’ll get the “sister girl” neck
You see, I am a priest, a provider and a protector
God has prepared my spirit, soul and body all together (to-get-her)
I’m the one she can count on to put no one but God above her
I’m a worshipper, a man of God, and a lover like no other
I have goals and dreams in life that I want to achieve
I need the one God has prepared for me, so to her I can cleave
I believe the qualities I possess would make any woman of God sure
That I am the physical manifestation of God’s love for her
You say for the rest of your life you want to spend it with me
Well, my last question is, “Are you a wife, ” my Woman Intended For Eternity?
