The Pastor's wife

She holds his hand
In support she takes his stand
She holds his fears
Inside her tears
When she cries for her man
Who inhabits a spiritual land.

She winces at his pain
When flesh and blood fail him
Again and again
And the critical arctic blasts
That bring a coldness in his soul
Try to freeze his bones until they cannot move.

The headlights flow into each other
Heading home after locking the late night door
He stares down the headlights
Then looks into the future
Across the centre, she holds his tired hand again
Knowing the highway will never end.

The curtains light up again
She puts a brew at the side of his bed
He turns the page and refreshes his spirit
And drinks in some heavenly wisdom
Spirit to spirit, Man to man, Deep unto deep
Here he goes again, so here she goes again too.

Refreshed, refocused, reassured
Their bones thaw
Their spirits are full
They embrace their source
But she'll keep an eye
On the one whom she shares with the world and heaven.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I think this poem speaks clearly about the challenge of being a pastor's wife. However, I think it would be more effective if you brought more emotion and passion into the poem, especially when speaking about how the Pastor's wife supports her man. For example: her heart breaks within when she sees him hurting again or when from His flock ache with pain, she sees his heart is hurting again-- she looks into his eyes with her warm love and prays for his comfort to come from above. With tears in her eyes and a compassionate heart-- she prays for her love to console her man and she prays for God to store her land. When looks into her husbands face she recognizes his strength and faith when he continually opens his heart to pain as he tries to help others time and again. I don't know if I made my point clear but the words need to bring more deep emotional response from the readers. You can say a lot more with fewer words if you choose words that powerfully impact the heart of the reader.
