The Beautiful You

Endurance is in your nature, 
For years long, you have in you –
The tolerance and patience,
To take on different roles.

First, you were a daughter,
Smiled gorgeously all the time,
Being daddy's little princess -
You were loved and loved.

Second, you became a wife,
Showered love and concern on him,
Looked after his family, like your own,
You were loved and respected.

The third mask you put on was
That of a mother’s, and you nurtured
Your child – extensively and deeply,
You were loved and admired.

Dear Woman, you juggled
The ball, but finally caught it!
You knew all the way through, to
Balance personal and professional.

You have an inclination, yes, to be kind,
Caring, giving and forgiving. Yet,
You are not the weak one – for you know
What it is to be a Woman!

On the occasion of the International Women's Day (8th March), I wish all the women a celebration of the womanhood and the rising spirit to achieve. Also, I take this opportunity to thank all those men who have respected women and have supported them in all their hardships.

P.S. - This poem was written on 8th March, 2014, and it is still there on my old blog.

Greetings on Women's Day. Though the verse written in 2014 its seems new and still holds good.
