The Woman I Am

Have you ever had someone in your life who inspires you? And, inspires you often? My Sweet-Smelling Girlfriend said something today that inspired me to write this poem...

The Woman I Am

From the earth I have come,
Molded and shaped like the clay from which I was born.
Weathered by the sun and hardened with time.
But, all is not lost for I have been softened by the rain,
And by your hands.
And in your eyes,
Seeing me for who I am.
Freeing me from my confines,
Forgiving me of my past.
With gentle touch,
And loving caress,
You shape me back
Into the woman I am.
