She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child,
But she's always a woman to me

He first saw her during college, we can say he was love-at-first sight with her. From then on, he made attempts to know the her.  Every time he leaves the main campus for his other subjects as her's was on the extension, it didn't felt laborious at all.  Until, he became too obvious and she has to hide from him sometimes.

She can lead you to love
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she'll never believe you
And she'll take what you give her, as long as it's free
Yeah, she steals like a thief
But she's always a woman to me

A few years after she graduated, she decided to go back to her hometown.  She was ready to leave everything behind, even what she had with him.  Surprisingly, a few months after she have arrived. She had a visitor.  The visitor doesn't even know anyone from the place nor speak the dialect and yet he was able to find her, She was impressed. Yes, it was him alright. The persistent and suave him. A few weeks more he formally asked the parents to be wed to her.

Oh--she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh--and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

They are almost halfway through their third decade and they are still in love with each other.  Having raised three children and watch them grow, she definitely knew them like the back of her hands.  Any issues arising within she can mend, she can conjure solutions faster than any of us and whatever differences ensue she can compromise. 

And she'll promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you're bleedin'
But she'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she's always a woman to me

Yeah, I do have issues with her sometimes (like everyone does, I know) but there's always something that makes me go around.  She's always there to support me us, she's even vocal with that.  And she tirelessly reminds us that no matter what happens we'll always find solace under her roof.

Who am I taking about?
I am talking about my mom, if it ain't obvious yet.
