Simple Words

by tiredwhimsy

I think you're beautiful.

So damn beautiful.

And smart, too.

Of course.

I love how you look at the world

in ways I can never imagine,

yet keep a wonder about you

that persists despite the cruel reminders of this fascinating world.

You have a strength within you

that just doesn't waver.


sometimes it does.

I know you worry

and start to lose your confidence.

I know sometimes you may get vulnerable.

You may feel alone.

Sometimes unwanted.

But just before you drown in your private darkness, you remember

you're not a mistake.

You always somehow find a reason to laugh.

God, I love your laugh.

Hell, I love everything about you.

You're amazing.

Like how you chase after your dreams,

work so hard,

and do it all with a positive attitude.

Then you indulge in your passions when you get home.

You're so full of life

and love.

But best of all

you're you.

I know they're not much...

but I hope these simple words put a smile on your face.

Just as you put a smile on mine

every single day.

This was a beautiful ode to a beloved. It was simple and you did use your words so lovingly that you recreated your feelings in the reader. Good poem.
