The Love of a Woman

The love of a woman
Is best expressed
Not by passion
But by soft snores
Next to you
Night after night.

The passion of a woman
Can't be shown
In makin' love.
Instead it is manifest
Sittin' in church
By a wink and raised eyebrows.

The loyalty of a wife
Will not be measured
By how she wears a golden band
It is shown best
When in deepest sleep
She whispers your name.
