I Want A Woman Who’ll Weep For Me: Romantic Improv Prose

January 5, 2014

A modern Prophet of God once started an interview with a very important man by looking at his wife and asking her: “Is he a good husband? Does he treat you well?”

What I want is a woman who will stand next to me at the judgment bar in front of the Savior. Like His Prophet did, Jesus will look at her and ask:
“Was he a good husband?”
“Did he treat you well?”
“Is he worthy to enter into the Celestial Kingdom?”

Then, most importantly, the Savior will ask her:
“Is this the man who you want to spend the rest of eternity with, based on how he’s treated you on earth?”

To which she will drop to her knees, look up at Him in all sincerity, and say, with a smile and through tears of joy, hope and gratitude:

“Yes. Yes! YES!! Please, dear Lord, YES!! Let him be mine forever
and ever
and ever!”
