A young man (still without a girlfriend) reminds himself that loveliness is more than skin-deep and must still be appreciated... even when beauty fades.



You Are So Beautiful

The secret of true natural beauty
Is more than being born a cutie.
The joy that rises from within
Imparts a wondrous glow to skin.
That smile that wrinkles up your eyes
Leaves signs of joy I’d not revise.

No makeup serves to hide the truth
That you no longer are a youth,
But loving knows to kindly see
The fullness of all you can be —
The quiet goodness of your heart —
The beauty that will not depart.
