THE WOMAN

You are there when I emerge from the SACRED CHAMBER after 10 long months.

You are there when I first see LIGHT embracing me with your JOYFUL TEARS.

You are there when I take my FIRST STEPS in this big bad world.

Years fly by and I grow up

But you are there when I need a SHOULDER TO CRY.

You are there when I enter into wedlock promising an ETERNAL BOND OF LOVE.

You are there when we shape our CAREERS together.

You are there when I kiss our kid GOOD NIGHT.

I become fragile and weak even as my hair shows shades of GREY.

The breadwinners become fragile old people.

But you are there to hear my musings about how the world has changed.

My eyesight fails me as the END draws near 

You are still there shedding ur last drop of TEAR.

I SALUTE YOU my dear WOMAN for showing me that life is an ETERNAL BLESSING.
