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.

    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,

    beauty,
    cheerfulness,
    wisdom,

    tenderness,
    wisdom,
    common sense,

    patience,
    radiance,
    indeed, a heavenly light.

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

    it was a truth and realistic poem, sir. though written in a simple tone it signifies a rather ignored theme.

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
