You Are Unique - Poem by Walterrean Salley

He could've made two—
Another just like you.
But, then, He took
A second thought,
And said, 'Just one would do.'

And so, for your loveliness—
Your uniqueness too—
There is no other
Quite like you.
There's just no other quite like you.

    We all have our own little quirks, likes and dislikes, and each poet has his own style - well written. (Report) Reply
