A Woman Of Substance Poem by Ruby Honeytip

A Woman Of Substance

Rating: 4.6

Woman of Substance.
She is not flesh and bones
Of insignificance.
She is intelligent substance,
And decency of character.
She is womanly flesh
Of hand felt proportions.
She knows her way,
And will hold your hand
Until you safely find yours.
There is no judgement in her compassion,
Although, there is laughter in her eyes.
And temptation in her walk.
Faith and love are the warmth
In her nature.
There is a nurturing heart
Beating under the fullness of her breast.
She will quietly hold
Her birthright of self respect
And will not allow you
To deny your own.
Your upsets are shared
And your tears blinked
From her eyes.
With this woman of substance
You will never walk alone.
Why would you ever let her go?

Never was worried about the respect, Ruby, but do think, very funny lady, that you should vow rather than swear.

The..wiggle when a walkin' an' a giggle when a talkin..' is from Chantilly Lace by The Big Bopper who died in the same plane as Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens. Fun song.
