Thoughtful Thursdays -- The Beauty of a Woman

I just came across this poem and I loved it.  I thought it was beautiful and touching and so true of the many women I have been privileged to know.

The Beauty Of A Woman

The beauty of a woman
isn't in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries,
or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman
must be seen from in her eyes;
Because that's the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman
isn't in a facial mole;
But true beauty in a woman,
is reflected by her soul.

It's the caring that she cares to give,
the passion that she shows;
And the beauty of a woman
with passing years only grows.

-Maya Angelou, Audrey Hepburn, Ralph Fenger and Sam Levenson

This poem is attributed to each of these authors depending on where you look.  I couldn't figure out which one actually said it, so they all get credit.  :)
