Ode to a Lady
The opera is not ending because you are singing.
I have seen the fat lady in the opera and believe me when I say you can't hold a candle to her, or a sandwich for that matter.
You are a woman of great dignity, grace, and intellect.
Men worship you and women wish they were you.
You are the envy of all whom you encounter.
The earth smiles because you walk upon it,
You ask for nothing and yet you are wealthy of spirit and mind.
The admiration and accolades you inspire would be difficult for another to bear, but not you.
For you are strong and fit, of great beauty and style.
There will never be another like you for you truly are unique and wondrous.
I am better just for having known you.
And you are simply beautiful to me!
