Am I Not Beautiful?

Am I not beautiful?
I'm that sun that brightens your day
I'm that moon that shines at night
I'm that star that decorates the sky
Am I not beautiful?

I'm the sweet thought that makes you smile
I'm that perfect dress that fits you well
I'm that mirror that tells the truth
I'm I not beautiful?

I'm the flower that beautifieds your garden
I'm the honey that sweetens your tea
I'm that lover that gives you hope
Am I not beautiful

I'm that food that keeps you strong
I'm that fruit that makes you fresh
I'm that shelter you find rest
I'm I not beautiful?

Am the crown that make you king
Am that queen who completes your throne
Am the citizen that makes up your community
Am I not beautiful?

I'm that opportunity you let go
I'm that time you waste in vain
I'm that friend you'd wished you'd never let go.
Won't that make you cry?
I know I'm beautiful!

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
