You ask how I can see

beauty in your weathered face?

The sparkle in your eyes

carries the imprint of

your rosy skin

firm round breasts

taught tummy

long, shapely limbs.

The softness of your smile

whispers of

a thousand passionate embraces

a full heart bruised, healed and filled again

a hundred times over.

Your laughter celebrates

the joy of living

to love yet another day.

You are Woman

in her breathtaking wholeness,

more beautiful

than ever you have been.


This post inspired by Patricia’s Place “In other words” for October 7th, 2015.

“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful
than the belief that she is beautiful.”
