"Be Generous in Your Affection" by Ike White

" generous in your affection
for the woman who lives inside you
even though she may fear it
or run from it
or allow it to touch
only the surface of her needs

and on occasian
when you hear crying
without sound or tears
or sense feelings of isolation
becoming her nearest companion
sit down beside her
and console her with your closeness
and the healing power
that caring will bring
become her staunch defender
when she is suspicious
of her self-worth
or seeks her salvation in discount love
and reassure her
that beyond the conflicts
which battle for her allegiance
she will ascend to the heights
of what she dares to believe
and dare she must
if she would change
the incorrect images
which hang from the walls
and doorway of her soul..."
