Beauty - Poem by Rick Berry

How is it, that beauty can silence a poet?
When I first saw you, I was speechless
I denied my reaction. I pretended...

I pretended...
That I never sat in silence... staring at your photo
That I never closed my eyes... to sear the image
That I never breathed in slowly... to imagine the scent

I knew from the second I saw you...
There was more than physical beauty
There was an inner beauty
There was passion for life

When I first saw you, I was speechless
Because there are no words so beautiful... as you
