A Woman's Time Alone

by Navada

A woman only has so much to give.

In youth, she needs some time to find her way –

to contemplate, discern how best to live,

to make the most of ev’ry blessed day.


The challenges of womanhood expand

throughout her middle age and senior years.

If grief occurs, despite the things she planned,

then loneliness can magnify her fears.


This chapter in her life can be a time

to reminisce about the loves she prized,

to celebrate achievements of her prime –

her wisdom that her children recognised.


A busy woman should consider this –

your time alone can be a source of bliss.
