Half the Woman

Half the Woman

Three daughters later,
A son was born.
Unexpected;
But just as planned.

She taught him to work,
Fear God and forgive,
Protected him;
Played catch, and held his hand.

Showed him how to love,
How to give,
To stand up for what is right,
To never give in.

Never wavering,
Never failing,
Never selfish,
Always there.

As the boy became a man,
I just hope,
I become, half the woman,
She’s always been.

I have always loved you,
And always will.
