Beauty

Written by: Rick Berry

How is it, that beauty could silence me
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 your scent

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

When I first saw you, I was speechless
I couldn't find the words to describe you
Because there are no words so beautiful... as you
