She is more than your modern woman


She is a hero in my eyes

the one that is nurturing

in my times of need-she


who listens attentively

to the constant murmuring of my

nonsense ranting, the unbreakable


strength that makes her

seem invincible. If I can’t

be in her presence I become insecure, unable to


function-my mind becomes filled with thoughts of doubt

a chill runs through my body; comprehending nothing,


only feeling the drumming of my heart, warms tears threaten to


my body shakes


and I turn to see her standing

just beyond. At such times,

utter happiness is within reach.
