A Woman :Truly Remarkable

A Woman :Truly Remarkable

1 min 108 1 min 108


There was a time I gazed at life

From a dark corner

Thoughts grim, acts hasty

Hours dull filled with thoughts

Restless, brilliant yet barren 

No good seems to come about


It was that season I met

A lady firm, fair and kind

She had a rosy life I thought

To find it's trodden with

More thorns than my own

A colossal, I thought she was


No bitterness could ever overcome

Her sweetness or shroud her joy

Life's storms could only 

Shake her a bit, she made it through

Emerged stronger than she was

Brooding me, would look up to her


"Life has no meaning, just live it"

I heard her say often

As water drips down 

Through many a layers of earth

Her words slowly but did sank deep

Into my heart and soul


Years passed before I felt

A truth and the wisdom

Of such words as hers'

The change she catalysed

Came to pass, I became someone

Better from worse


Not even a slightest hesitation or doubt

Is to arise in my mind, to keep me

From calling her 'a lady' remarkable 

Truly nothing less, perhaps more

A fine blend of courage and compassion 

Strikes the mind when paths are crossed


A mother bold and loving

Corrects with a soft but a firm grip

Her love to her child, is the purest you can find

Under the heavens, may be even above

A teacher to many and a friend to me

One I value and admire above all
