Beauty - Poem by Brian Potthast

Looking at you I see
Many different signs of beauty.
One of these may be
The eyes through which you see.
Another being that radiating smile
That seems to stretch forever in a mile.
You have the qualities of an angel.
But you don’t see the way I do.
Never believing the things I say.
Things like “you have beauty beyond compare”.
Just turn around I’ll be there,
Saying what I’ve said before.
The truth to you is all I’ve gave.
Because the truth is all I have.
