An Exemplary Woman: Pooja

 

Smart, elegant and beautiful,

at times volatile, but never spiteful;

Always proactive and respectful –

to the point of self-effacement,  

from a denial of personal fulfilment.

 

A doting and loving wife; but

as a mother her qualities shine:

As over and above attention she lavishes,

a habit of reading she encompasses;

the verbal rod to discipline she aptly uses.

 

Her duties as a daughter-in-law, 

sister-in-law, also every other relation

she dutifully abides, at the cost of her

desires, friends, even her personal time:

An exemplary woman – the world her defines.

 

PS: Wrote this poem for a handwritten card, for my dear friend Pooja, on her 35th birthday yesterday -the 23rd of July. It is obviously inspired by her.
