Woman So Wonderful - Poem by Sakhiwo Magwentshu

She cooks and cleans
Who lands her a helping hand?
You don't have to tell her twice
She always knows you made a mistake
Who apreciates her?
A handful... if not none

She may not fix broken cars and outworn yards
But she is a skilled artist
Who makes a home out of clay
She makes it paradise
Strength her not
By looking at her arms
But rather by the burdens
She carries in her soul
Her love & caring
Need not be proved with expensive gifts
For the most valuable gift she gives
is the gift within
She needs no teacher's certificate
For I am who I am today
Because she taught self-respect
She taught me self-belief
Woman so wonderful
Mother so incredible

She cries and weeps
Tears fall from her eyes
Down her cheeks

But she will always manage a hug and a kiss
For the love within will always be still

Within that woman you will find a friend
Within that woman you will find a daughter
Within that woman i have found a sister
Within that woman we have found mothers

She is all in all...all in one
She is one in a of a kind
After all she is woman so wonderful

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There can be nothing compared to a love of a mother who knows her role. God gave me the experience of a lifetime: He put in the hearts of many mothers while I was growing up who showed me the way. Through my sisters love and her ability to take care of us like her own kids although she is younger than us, I realised that God has these creatures a beautiful that even they can't get rid of. They are the pillars of the human race. I dedicate this poem to them.

    Awwwwwwwwww! I love this beautiful tribute to women, I was raised by such a mother and such a sister helped in making me who I am today, the mother is late and the sister not well in health but I still treasure her and mama's teachings will always make me prosper in life, thank you for sharing such a lovely write.
