when I was young 
I went to sea
I met a pelican
she needled me

when I was brave
I  went to field
I saw my shadow
she turned to me

When I was lost
I journeyed within
I found a love
she sang with me

when I was tired
I sat me down
I left this house
she carried me

    So happy you liked it. I think you're right about a woman's love (very well expressed) although at some level I think we all have a feminine side in us. Warm thoughts, Ralph
