I’ll Bet You Didn’t Know You’re Beautiful

I’ll bet you didn’t know you’re beautiful,
Although I’m just one man, one set of eyes,
And I’m not after anything. But I
Have seen you gently, strongly improvise

To deal with all the hardship that you face;
And yet you shine, like pure and distant stars
That hold their truth through cold reaches of space,
And teach more than a thousand seminars.

I’m barely more than stranger, that is true:
But these few days, I’ve seen so much of you,
There’s grace in every single thing you do,
And even in the things that you… eschew.

I hope you find a happy life, and full –
For you’re a melody – you’re beautiful.
