The Good Women

March 8, 2018

Celebrate the Women in your Life

The good women in my life
The ones who made me see and live this life
Ones that sacrificed
Made the way, laughed
Cried, died.

I salute you
Glad to have known and learnt from you
The women
The good women who made me
The woman I came to be in this my life.

Life’s Not Easy

Life’s not easy but what I’ve got
Even if I sacrifice, pay my dues
Know it doesn’t mean
I get to cruise.

If the hard work never stops
Does it mean I’ll not
Feel fun and laughter, give it up
Be satisfied with my lot?

Absolutely, absolutely not.

Gold and Silver reign
You have sacrificed so much
To stand on the podium
This momentous day.

Power, strength and fortitude
Along with dreams of magnitude
Made come true
The Gold and Silver reign today.

Stars in every way
You have done the work
You’ve earned the right
To hold Gold and Silver
Close to your heart tonight.
~ Patrice
