One Poem at a time


A striking woman,

beautiful beyond words

yet, she is alone

slender, dark and tall

with a perfect figure

oval face without flaw

perhaps too stunning  

she is alone

looking closer, I see

a tear appear on her cheek

slowly, I approach her

softly I say I understand

sharing her pain and sorrow

reaching out I tell her

"your inner beauty shines bright"

you are not alone.................
