The Calling

Her line goes back through a thousand mothers,

And as many winters,

To this moment now, the one she lives in

With grace and surety.

Do not approach her with ego, addiction, vanity or cruelty--

She will show you her back and scorn you.

But if she chooses you,

If she lets you see the unfettered natural passion behind her eyes,

If she says,

"you are mine"

Then you are--

Then you're blessed--

And you can follow each other through dreams along a snowy timber line

Into a place you've never imagined nor seen before.

Don't waste it.

Don't name it.

But, woman,

Know that it is Holy.

I am at a loss for words. *sigh*
I love this part...

If she says,

"you are mine"

Then you are--

Then you're blessed--

And this...

Don't waste it,
Don't name it,
But Woman
Know that it is Holy.

You expressed this PERFECTLY!!
Thank You!!
