I know a woman
A remarkable woman

A woman whose heart beats with Islamic
rhythms from the desert lands on the Nile

A woman dressed in shades of purple,
Holding a mighty sword,
Her breastplate adorned with
Diamonds and tiger's eye
Reflect her almond-esque eyes
Protecting her son
A rare beauty
Inside and out

I know a woman
A remarkable woman

A woman who dances with Rumi
And has love affairs with words
That lead to pure perfection
On parchment

I know a woman
A remarkable woman

A passionate woman
A defiant woman
A brave woman

A woman who is not afraid to cry real
Tears of happiness or
Those of sorrow.

I know a woman
A remarkable woman

A woman so small
I want to protect her from the world
But she is strong and she protects me.

Colours of a peacock
Flow freely from her delicate frame,
Connecting souls
Mine and hers.

I know a woman
A remarkable woman

And that woman is you…

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
