  1. 1. These poems are dedicated to you because it is not often that I tell you that I love you or am inspired byyou, but I do. You are cherished by all of your love ones, especially me. Although you think that youare taken for granted, this is to show you that you are not. You have helped to make me the personthat I am today, because I am walking in the right direction with you guiding me all the way. You haveand continue to help me grow, by giving me your knowledge, and experiences, that have made yougrow, so that they may be able to help me. You will never and can never be replaced, for you areworth an unlimited amount of gold. I am becoming more of a clone of you day by day. That is why thispoem is dedicated to you.you always tell me, and anyone that has loss someone, that although a loved one may not be here withyou anymore on natural earth, they are still always with you. They are watching over you like aguardian angel. You also say that they will forever be in your heart. You say that when a loved one isgone what they did in you or someone else life will never be forgot, and that their legacy will live onforever more. This will always be true to me, when someone is gone, they are there in spirit, and inyou heart. They will forever be with you. They may be gone but never forgotten.throughout the course of my life, from when I was an infant, and could barely understand a word. You toldme that whenever I needed you, you would always be there. No matter on the moon or the sky, youwould be there, when I needed you most.Whenever I needed help, or was guided in the wrong way of life, you would be there to help guide meback in the right way.As life has gone on you still say this and, keep your word. Whenever I am in need of you help, you arealways, and will forever be there, no matter what, To give me your hand to hold.This is for When times are on a bumpy road, you say that everything will be fine, because you have faith.When you are always happy, you say because you have faith in god. You say that the word says thatas long as you have faith the size of a mustard seed in the lord, everything will be okay. The timesthat others are worrying, and you should be nervous at times. You say that there is no need to getnervous, or anxious, because you have faith, and having the smallest amount of faith can change awhole situation. Therefore all you have to do is put faith in the lord in things will work in your favor.

  14. 14. Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.Im not cute or built to suit a fashion models sizeBut when I start to tell them,They think Im telling lies., I say,Its in the reach of my armsThe span of my hips,The stride of my step,The curl of my lips. Im a womanPhenomenally. Phenomenal woman, Thats me.I walk into a room Just as cool as you please, And to a man,The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees.Then they swarm around me, A hive of honey bees. I say,Its the fire in my eyes, And the flash of my teeth,The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet. Im a womanPhenomenally. Phenomenal woman, Thats me.Men themselves have wonderedWhat they see in me. They try so muchBut they cant touch My inner mystery.When I try to show them They say they still cant see.I say, Its in the arch of my back, The sun of my smile,The ride of my breasts, The grace of my style. Im a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,Thats me. Now you understand Just why my heads not bowed.I dont shout or jump about Or have to talk real loud.When you see me passing, It ought to make you proud.I say, Its in the click of my heels,The bend of my hair,the palm of my hand,The need of my care,Cause Im a womanPhenomenally.Phenomenal woman,Thats me.
