The Woman


For all that life has thrown

In her face, in her way

She rises every day

To live her truth

Greeting every moment

With a warrior’s pride

Taking changes in stride

Owning her strength

Returning home each night

There’s still work left to do

Deep breath to see it through

Love motivates

Friends since childhood

Gather together each year

Celebrate birthdays

Always exchange gifts

Laughter and conversation

Taco Bell dinner
