A caring heart free of wiles,

Screams of pain masked by decorous smiles,

Soothing than the warmth of tiles,

Refreshing than the waters of Nile,


A complete being yet divided,

Shared in the hearts of children birthed,

In pieces of cakes digested,

In plates of knowledge consumed,


Woman - man of many parts

Woman – man of many parts

Selfless to remember all,

Follows her hubby to the ball,

Rescues her children from a fall,

Fills the house with goodies from the mall,


Rises from bed before dawn,

Wakes all in the midst of yawn,

Beautifies the house like a mowed lawn,

Renders hunger as a mere pawn,


Gentle as a dove,

Sharing petals of love,

A haven of protection like a proven cove,

Stretching her hand to express love,


P.S.: Happy International Women’s day to all women who have desired to embrace greatness.
