A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed
We do seem so different so different indeed.

The window of her soul is open to light
She always seems happy and bubbly and bright
And her type of person a pleasure to know
For beauty goes with her where-ever she go.

Of those who are different good things she does say
And for to help out others she goes out of her way
She helps out the homeless and those in dire poverty
I do not know of anyone as great as she.

And sad to think her type are becoming more rare
For the poor and downtrodden she genuinely does care
To the most worthy causes her work free time she devote
Yet she is not seen as one worthy of note.

A beautiful person with a heart of gold
And surely her story deserves to be told
Not proud of her beauty and free of conceit
And people like her one does not often meet.

    Francis, as I read your ode to a beautiful person with a heart of gold, I reflect on such souls that I've known, and others that I still know. I sincerely believe that there are a whole lot more of these angels than most of us are aware of. Through our poetry, let us continue opening our hearts to these messengers of God.

    Yet she is not seen as one worthy of note. yes very true. there are so many beautiful human beings whose work is not known and their names do not come in the papers. they are h idden saints of our times. we shall write always about such people. thank you dear poet. i wonder about your poems. 8805 poems did u publish. it is a wonder for me
