A woman of talent, a woman of thought,
A woman of charm and good taste,
Independent and private.
Observant and quiet,
A woman of natural grace.
A woman of truth; a woman of honor,
Firm in her beliefs and convictions,
Courageous and brave.
Though sometimes afraid,
Seeks no favors nor dispensations.
A woman of subtle humor and wit,
Is pleased to hear words of good cheer,
Approves of gentle jesting.
Finds debasement distressing,
In such case, just turns a deaf ear.
A woman of kindness, a woman of care,
Whose heart is as big as outdoors,
Can love with a passion.
Can bleed with compassion,
Shows respect and love for the Lord.
A friend I trust and entrust with my soul,
A friend of no age and no race,
As I am, she accepts me.
Seeks no cause to reject me,
A friend, I've been given by grace.
