Why I Greet A Woman


I greet 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.
