Sacred






Be that man
Who looks his woman in the eye when he gets home
And says ‘You look beautiful, darling.’
And means it.
Because this thing you have going is
Sacred

Be that man
Who offers his woman a back rub, a glass of wine
Or coffee
Or simply some time and space
Where she can be herself.
Because this thing you have going is
Sacred


Be that man
Who doesn’t make jokes about his woman, behind her back
Because she is too precious, too dear
Some things you do not joke about
Because this thing you have going is
Sacred.

Be that man
Who would drop everything in a jiffy to be beside her
Not because she cannot manage
But because you know how much she hates to do it all by herself
Tell her she is strong and brave,
And hold her hand
Because this thing you have going is
Sacred

  1. The poems in the beginning of your books are so beautiful and relevant. I was able to understand and empathize my friends bipolar condition after reading 'Life is what you make it'. It really helped me a lot. Thank you.
