Older Woman

Have you ever seen her?

She’s comfortable in her skin
She’s beautiful but unaware
She’s gracious and strong
She’s wise and sharp
She sees right through you
She’s gone to both hell and heaven
She’s thought she would die
But she lived
She’s left to tell
You have nothing to worry about
She always assures you
Those words have made you mad
Doesn’t she get how hard this is
How can she just say that
Those words have comforted you
Those words have settled you
She is at peace
She is at ease
Her few wrinkles
are gorgeous
Even sexy
Especially when wrinkles are
The least of her worries
Or how grey her hair is becoming

Older woman
How many times
Have I wanted to be you
To be so at ease in my skin
To be so wise
To be so beautiful and strong
To be so at rest and so at ease
As I hold my breathe
Anticipating my next step
Fearful of what might go wrong
If it will be alright
Pursuing the rest of my life
You simply draw back
From the wealth of your years
To spur me forward
Gracefully sometimes harshly
But you are always perfect
Always what I need

You believe
You are at rest
You know who you are
No one can push you
Only you and you do
Sometimes you look at me
With envy
Just to give me wings
Older woman
You are the finest woman alive
