Beautiful Women

You are beautiful women;
strong, reflective, mighty
Weeping willow, bending with the wind – not opposing it
Fighting your demons, your battles with endurance and dignity
I am in awe of you, I am in awe of you
The pages of your book,
a slow read for a woman like me
Each turning of a word,
a page full of awakening and awareness
Years of discovery
Years of uncovering
your facade
Finding your truth,
your truth
Your story – your way
Each page exposing another layer
A complicated life, a simple life
– and like a flower in partial bloom
the best is yet to come
I remain in the shadows…slowly ascending
Outstretched wing span of an eagle,
heart and soul of a dove;
the power of a bird in flight
Delicate wings of an angel
An image of godliness that takes my breath away
You bring tears to my eyes, an ache to my heart,
the way a new mother feels at the first sight of her child
A feeling of greatness, humility and expansion,
that bursts into nothingness, vast and boundary-less
You are a magnificent creature
You are beautiful women
strong, reflective, mighty
I remain in the shadows…slowly ascending
A weeping willow, bending with the wind – not opposing it
Fighting my demons, my battles with endurance and dignity
I am in awe of you, I am in awe of you
