She's an oak tree
Stronger then any man I've ever seen
She's real woman
So brave
Not afraid to love
And won't frighten you
by insulting you
She will respect
and understand you
You battle the war of women's rights
A war you never volunteered for
Just trying to be yourself
You've been through it all
Did not fall
You stand tall and strong
Ready to fight some more
Yet so softly you hug me
I don't mind being your little bear
Your arms are like a home
A place safe from harm
Your kiss is soft and warm
Food to a bleeding heart
Someday we will meet again
In a better place
At a better time
You can tell me all about it then
I'm listening
Hoping the best for you Until we meet again
