SHE’S A WOMAN
She’s a woman
touched by God
blessed by God
loved by God.
Her kindness cannot be measured, at any length,
When all seems impossible, she still finds strength.
Oh yes she cries, she does feel pain,
But she’s quick to pick herself, back up again.
Sometimes she’s lonely, in the midst of a crowd,
When silence seems forgotten, by all that is loud.
When ignorance prevails
she walks proudly, confident, and wise,
When games are won and games are lost
she’s still a prize.
She carries the burdens of the world
on her shoulders,
Her pride and determination
can lift any boulder.
She’s busy from the light of the day
to the dark of the night,
When she feels something is wrong
she tries to make it right.
When she’s lost or comes to a road
that has a dead end,
Her belief in God
put her back on the right road again.
and……………………loved by God.
