An Ode to Good Women

And so what about good women,
And why I'm attracted to them?
Is it because they still teach us
Much more, it would seem, that most men?

The ones I love and admire
Accept aging with comfort and grace.
They are much more attentive to Life
Than their hair tint or lines in their face.

But that doesn't say it just right;
They enjoy still being attractive.
It's just that in pulling it off
They're so real while still being active.

And so what can I say about how
I can reach out again, perhaps now?
Is it really that simple, with my smile and it's dimple,
Trust a good woman, and bow?
