Why I Greet A Woman

I greet a woman
For beauty
In body and in soul
I know her heart
Is pure
I know love
Flows out from within a woman
I love woman
A woman takes
Optimistic view of life
I know
A woman's motto is
To love and be loved
I greet woman
Woman is capable
Woman can cook meals
Woman can decorate
The home in style
Woman can teach her kids
Woman never feels tired
I greet woman
Woman is strong and fit
Physically and within
Woman has confidence
Woman takes own decisions
And knows better
What is right for her
Woman has a mind of her own
I greet woman
Woman is intelligent
Woman can used her intelligence
To take the world forward
I greet woman
Woman is reliable
Woman has a sense of humor
Woman can tackle tricky situation
See woman twinkle in her eyes
See woman curling up mouth
In a smile
I greet woman
I salute woman
Really it is said
Woman is Godsend
Woman is a best friend
Woman is a best mother
Woman is a best sister
Woman is a best wife
I greet woman
A breath of fresh air for life.

    I thankyou first of all for sharing this poem! Such an insight on a woman, not just because i am one but because you have obviously taken the time to actually know a woman, and appreciate much more than what your eyes can see. You are a true gentleman! So few out there. Thankyou for reading some of my poems, you may like or at least understand why i would write a poem called death to the eyes, please read! (Report) Reply

    I do not know if you are a poet or a designer of fantastic vision. You must be truly aesthetic. Thirteen thousand poems- unbelievable yet good. You should name your poem book- Fountain of Poems. (Report) Reply

    Fifty three years ago
    I met a woman like
    the woman you describe.

    Fifty two years ago
    this woman became my bride,
    a wife.

    Fifty-one years ago
    this woman became
    the mother of our child.

    For more than fifty years
    this woman has been my life,
    my day and night,


    common sense,

    indeed, a heavenly light.

    For more than fifty years
    this woman,
    has been a delight,
    a blessing,
    my life. (Report) Reply
