Beautiful Lie

Beauty always seen by  the beholder 
That’s what I have read and always believed
When someone is sad and needs a shoulder
Don’t knock them back with words you can’t retrieve

They may be plain of face, but pure within
Eyes might not sit right or nose all askew
Being ugly would you say was a sin
Have you ever thought what they think of you

So before you say that beautiful lie
Put a smile on your face to make it true
Look into their eyes and say with a sigh
You are so beautiful and I love you

Remember beauty fades when of the skin
Real beauty is always shining within

a shakespearian sonnet    dated   10/12/2012

    I don't think I've even been lied to that often lol. I like this poem a lot, had to read another sonnet, I seem to be commenting purely on sonnets. Thanks for all of your wonderful comments. This poem reminds me of a Ramon Ayala song lol. He's a famous mexican Songwriter/acordian player. He mother tells him to look for love, but don't look for one too pretty, because it passes with time, look for love. I find it funny, but very real, nice work here.
