More Than Pearls

A poem based on Proverbs 31

A good woman is worth more than
    diamonds and pearls–
How will we know her when we see her?

She is strong.
She is honorable.
She looks to the future with a glimmer
    in her eye–
She knows there is hope.

She is wise.
She is kind.
She watches over her loved ones with a glimmer
    in her eye–
She knows there is hope.

Her children are her blessings
Whether they call her Mother
    or Teacher
    or Grandmother
    or Neighbor
    or Aunt
    or Friend.

Those who love her
Know that she is more than they could have asked.

She is charming.
She is beautiful.
But these things are temporary.

She is faithful.
She is generous.
These things last forever.

A good woman is worth more than
    diamonds and pearls.
We will know her
Because she is the one watching over us
    with a glimmer in her eye.

She knows there is hope.
