An Ode to Women

Posted on 25/04/2007


My queens
Today let me come clean
You are the reason I still stand before you
I’ve tried so many times but I can’t ignore you
You are my friend, my sister, my mother
You are my cousin, my niece, my lover
You are compassion, grace and humility
Love radiates fusing to form beauty
Unified mankind from its birth
Soul provider here on earth

I fear you may not appreciate your true potential
Your soul reveals impeccable credentials
Your strength meanders as it begins to show
Your heart sings and now we will all know
Multiple roles as partner, mother and ultimate life preserver
Performing your duties regardless of the weather
The real chief of any home
Ensuring I am never alone

The gift of life is what you provide
Your love embraces humanity as it continues to survive
Without you, where would I be?
A lonely existence forever stuck is misery
I know I don’t always show my appreciation
And I don’t always understand your position
I’m only a man and I don’t realise
Please forgive me, I sincerely apologise
My queens let me come clean
Your victory is near it’s not just a dream
For I realise now I am nothing without you
And the truth is, I really do love you.

Thank you
