So Beautiful

I want to tell you that you are beautiful

But I don’t merely want these words heard

I want them felt by you

Because you should feel as beautiful as you are

It’s not just your eyes that make you beautiful (though they seem to always invite my awe-struck gaze)

And it’s not just your hair (though the strokes of light in each strand illuminate everything around you)

And it’s not just your smile (though it reminds me to enjoy life instead of focusing on the struggles it brings)

And it’s not just your voice (which will always, always sweep me away from my sorrows and draw me closer to an unexplained happiness)

Or even your hands (though they sing my tension to sleep when I get to hold them)

It’s your heart…what I feel from your heart is what makes you beautiful in my soul. And you are so,so beautiful… Not only in my eyes, but in my life…

Words that just came to me. I wanted to tell her that she was beautiful, but I began hearling cliche phrases in my head…and I thought to myself ” how meaningless is it to say things that people have been saying for centuries?”. I wanted to be different

Hopefully I was
