Will She Wish For More

Her face and hands reflect the calluses and lines
She is everything a women is and everything
a women shouldn't have to be.
She has worked the earth as a man has.
She has bore his children as a man can't.
She will sacrifice everything for the love of both
Place no conditions on either
But in the dead of night, she does pray...
