Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. Prov.31.10
You will find so few in a lifetime that
When you meet her she shines.
At first you may not see her light
For she does not glitter but rather burns with
A passion that radiates through her in myriad colors
Like the light through clouds at sunset.
She abides by her heart; follows her beliefs;
She is dedicated to her destiny.
You see the mirth of youth in her bright eyes;
The memory of her smile illuminates the dark night.
She bestows grace in her gestures.
Her manner implies,
“What can I do?”
“How may I help?”
“I’ll be there for you.”
She takes care. With small generosities she seeks to share.
She searches for meaning in the grand design.
She grieves each loss and celebrates every delight.
She marks the journey with a trail of friends.
She counsels patience, temperance, appreciation.
By her light we can find the way.
