The way she talked about her ex

It was a beautiful date
The gentle breeze, made her scarf gently blow
It was time for him to ask that question
That question many women dread

"Tell me about your ex" 
The man asked the woman he is getting to know
She gave a giggle, then looked down
Will she be evasive like other women?

She opened up about her past relationships
Four of them in number
She mentioned the names of those four men
And how long she dated them

She was clear about why the relationships ended
The first man cheated on her
The second used to beat her up and drink too much
The third, well, he just dumped her

The fourth was the most painful
He hid the fact that he had a child with another woman
Then he cheated on her
And got another woman pregnant

Her scarf fell to the floor
This man on a date with her stood up
Knelt and picked up the fallen scarf
As he placed the scarf around her neck, he was sure

He was sure this is the woman he wants to grow to love
Because this woman, is honest
She trusts him with her dark past
So many women feel an ex is a no go topic

He was so sure about her
Because in as much as those four men hurt her
There was no anger or bitterness in her
She was so graceful and optimistic about love, a sign of true healing

He was so sure about her
Because there was no hate
Though those four men wasted her time, she had moved on
Often, women carry hate and suspicion from the previous relationship into a new relationship

He was so sure about her
Because she owned up to her mistakes
She didn't lay blame on the four men only
She can critic herself, such a woman is wise

He was so sure about her
Because she made it clear to him
That this new man better treat her right, or else she'll walk away
She knows her worth and won't put up with crap

But above all, he was so sure about her
Because she admitted that her past four relationships did not work out 
Since God was not in them
This new man's love for God, is what attracted her to him

So this new man knelt near her
He said, "Like your scarf that fell
I will catch you when you fall in love with me
For I have already fallen in love with you"

She kissed his forehead and said
"I am already in your hands, I have fallen for you too
Now that you know my past
Please build with me our bright and Godly future"
