Literature Text

Beauty's in the eye of the beholder sounds so cliché.
Said without thought to help explain the daily fray.

Shakespeare says, "Beauty is bought by judgment of the eye."
This is better, yet still lacks what it takes to make me cry.

More to the point, when I see the mountains surrounded by the sky.
This lifts my heart, takes my breath and brings a tear to my eye.

People are beautiful, inside and out, individually in their own way.
I love each and every one of you, not simply something that I say.

Our lives connect and I feel your soul melding with mine.
Our eyes link up, auras dance and my day starts to shine.

You are what's important to me and keep me living day to day.
I mean that from my heart and soul and skip past the cliché.

Emotions that can't be heard, seen, felt, tasted, or smelled.
I say that I want to behold, when I really want to be held.
