Ode to the Galentines—One Moore Thing


Here’s to the ladies

The, smart, fierce, brave and kind 

On a holiday about love 

They are the first that come to mind.

 They are not often thanked 

For what they sacrifice and give 

For all of the joy and love and the reminders to really live. 

They take care of the babies 

And do an insane amount whether they work or stay at home 

They clean and fold clothes and pay bills while fantasizing about Rome. 

They are strong and relentless 

They put in full days before they uber the kids and pack the lunch 

They deserve the world or a massage or at least a little ladies brunch. 

They are the glue 

They hold life from falling apart 

I’m grateful that the tribe I hold dear are true works of art. 

There should be more days to thank them 

But for now, this is a start. 

Please move over Valentine, there is a new saint in town 

It is high time we celebrate the ladies that never let us down 

Here’s to the dear Galentines, 

There is no need for chocolates, we will take our brunch with a crown. 

So thank a lady who has made a difference in your life 

Whether a friend, a sister, a mother or a wife. 

We all deserve to be seen 

That much is truer than true 

So be a gem and thank the women that make you, you. 

Raise a glass to those who show up time after time 

Here’s to the warriors among us we are lucky enough to call Galentines.
