The Woman I Want To Be

I want to be beautiful in the eyes of my love,
always poised and exquisite.
To have pride in myself, love myself, be sincere,
and have respect for myself.
I want to always be ready to listen to others,
laugh and sympathize with them,
no matter how I feel or how bad my day might be.
I never want my feelings to get hurt or hold grudges,
or have jealousy.
I want a husband, who worships me, for I deserve that.
I can be the wife that he has been longing for.
I want to be a wonderful mother,
patient and cheerful.
firm and just in decisions, and rich in self-control.
I don't ever want to yell at my children,
I want to acknowledge them, always be full of love
for them, I want them to adore me.
And when they are older, I want them to confide in me,
for then my wisdom will be infallible and my guidance will be gold.
I want to be the kind of woman
that poets write songs about.
I never want to doubt the Lords existence or
stray from his ways.
I want to be the ideal wife, a perfect mother
a neighbor and friend everyone loves and respects.
I keep hoping this woman will turn up someday,
but I won't despair for I am catching glimpses of her
already, I see just enough of this woman every now
and then so I don't despair entirely.
I'll just be patient, I'll be happy with the fragments
of the woman that I already am...
