The Greatest Proof of Love

The greatest proof of love:
Man’s desire to protect
His most endearing quality:
The role he shares with heavenly beings…
A guarding angel on earth
With his strength
Protecting his woman
From outer attacks…

And yet…
From the heart of every woman
A gentle voice pleads:
"Will you protect me
From the strength of your own heart?
I am most vulnerable to you…
Will you protect my heart
From your power
Over me?"

    We all know men will generally protect women for abuse of any kind but who protects us from the handbags and heartbreakers? Take care, Richard

    A conundrum that comes with that risk of falling so hard for another, hoping it can be resolved & secured to attain that inner peace. Been there.

    Yes....it surely is a scary place to be, Drake....I find this the most most most amazing thing about men. The desire to protect his woman. It is just so sweet. I have two older brothers...they would be rough with me, tease me, and drive me bonkers, but should anyone dare bother me...there were there, "Hey, your messing with my sister!" :) But, in love relationships...the man must protect his woman's gentle heart from his ways...(infidelity, lies, harshness..the list could go on!) Thanks for stopping by!
