    So interesting to watch a woman
    See the wealth of her emotion
    How it changes
    How it grows
    This can all be observed
    When the river flows

    A biological, physiological, phenomenon
    An internal manifestation of all her wonder
    In so many ways this complexity shows
    That time of the month
    When the river flows

    The sudden anger
    Wow
    Beauty with an attitude
    The cry for nothing tears
    The laughter mixed with sorrow
    The courage mixed with fear

    Changing emotional direction
    Without warning
    Without clue
    Equally beautiful
    Her sexual desire
    Like a Lioness in heat
    As the river runs through

    Observing women as I do
    I’ve come to learn a thing or two
    When no means yes
    When yes means no
    I’ve learned when to stay
    I’ve learned when to go

    I can never really understand
    But I will never judge
    I find it beautiful
    For them my admiration grows
    For all they go through
    When the river flows
