One Flaw in Women *

Women have strengths that amaze men.....
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
But they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
And laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer
When they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.

They cry when their children excel
And cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
A birth or a wedding.

Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
Yet they are strong when they
Think there is no strength left.

They know that a hug and a kiss
Can heal a broken heart.

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
To show how much they care about you.

The heart of a woman is what
Makes the world keep turning.

They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their
Family and friends.

Women have vital things to say
And everything to give.


Please pass this along to all your women friends and relatives to remind them just how amazing they are.

* Not to offend the other half of my readership but ... if you can come up with a good one for men, I promise to post it!

Michelle - thanks so much for stopping by. Though I am on FB alot, I get much more satisfaction from writing on my blog. I am glad I still have you as a reader.

I have seen this poem a few times and love it.

Never saw this before and it is so true - all of it. Each and every word. Too bad so many of us forget all these things - about ourselves.

Thank you for the reminder.
