Nothing More Beautiful

Rating: 5.0
This is dedicated in loving memory of Taylor Hyer, who sadly passed away as an eighth grader. We all miss him. It was read by the principal to students, parents, and teachers on April 6,2007 at a tree planting in his memory. I am very honored to have Taylor's friends and family hear it.

There is nothing more beautiful than a good deed
a person who can stand up and take the lead
someone who knows each day is a gift
someone who's not afraid to make a wish

there is nothing more beautiful than a sincere smile
a person who can make everything worth while
someone who knows that in the end of the end
all those little wounds will eventually mend

there is nothing more beautiful than a hand to hold
a person who knows love never gets old
someone who likes the little things that come from day to day
someone who leaves you with memories that never fade away

there is nothing more beautiful than a new dawn
a moment when you look up to see the clouds are gone
a key to the future in the palm of your hand
and a place where you are understood and you understand

there is nothing more beautiful than heartfelt words
coming from a voice so longing to be heard
someone who knows life is more than a race against time
it's what you do that matters, it's what you give that makes you shine

there is nothing more beautiful.
