My Wonder Woman

She’s in the sun
the stars and the moon

She’s in the wind
the heat and the rain

She’s in my thoughts
my memories and wishes

She’s my life
my being and existence

She’s gold
not silver or bronze

She’s strong
tough and fierce 

She’s somebody
everybody and everything 

She hung on with faith
not fear and weakness

She spread love
not sadness or pain

She’s gonna be free
spread her wings and fly
