Her Beautyi look at you and see beauty,
and yet, you've been told you aren't beautiful.
I watch you and see love,
and yet, you've been told you aren't lovely.
i want to shout to you "you are precious beyond words!"
yet i know you can't hear me.
and so i won't shout. i will just keep believing in you and reminding you.
and wait for you to see it, to hear it, and to know it as deeply as i do.
