God's Gift To Women - Poem by Lora Colon

How little I care for rubies and pearls,
Or the sparkle of a diamond ring,
But my heart beats fast and my mind does stray
When a man's voice begins to sing

No matter that my path has obstacles,
A rough trip I'll forget presently,
Upon arrival, I have but one wish....
That a man's arms be waiting for me

I've heard women say in an angry tone
When with their lover they have just tiffed:
'He thinks he's special, God's gift to women, '
But I think of each man as a gift

His lips, his arms, every part of a man
Are all treasures that women adore,
What else do we need on a stormy night,
Or when winter's winds howl at the door?

So I see each man as a precious gift,
Each comes in his own beribboned wrap,
We have but to choose the gift we like best,
Then to win his heart, we set the trap

With proper intent, I love every man,
Forgive me if I seem indiscreet,
His voice, his kind eyes, rough hands, tender touch,
Without each other, we're incomplete

And so I'm thankful for this woman's gift,
In His wisdom, God ordained this plan,
When I call my love, he runs to my arms,
For woman is also God's gift to man

    I really like this poem Lora. The fifth stanza though could be improved from a man's perspective (at least mine) ...

    So I see each man as a precious gift,
    No real man desires a life alone,
    We have but to choose the gift we like best,
    To win his heart, just open our own.

    Your words are a nice variation to my poem. I like them. Let the reader substitute your words for mine if they choose. Thank you, Brian.

    A lovely poem, with a lovely message. I do believe we are a gift to each other, especially when given freely and unconditionally. But I'm not so sure about
    'I love every man, '
    some of us are content with just one.

    Darlene, this is why I start the stanza with the words With proper intent. The love I refer to in this line is the same as in Love thy neighbor. I am all for loving only one man at a time - preferably only one man for ALL time, with a special love that is reserved for him alone. This special love is too precious and sacred to be given frivolously. Just want you to know I agree with you - thanks for your comment.

    If people really loved each other like this.
    The world would be nothing but love and bliss.

    This lovely poem shows how very luck you are.
    Very pleasant and well written.
