I look up at the sun, yellow streaks of light dancing – twirling with the red and orange beams Golden and glorious high up in the sky, but to your beauty it does not compare So I look higher where stars and supernovas clash into colours one’s mind cannot even imagine But still to your beauty it does not compare This time I have to look down into the clear crystal waters of the Atlantic Ocean Thousands of colours melting into one another - combined by corrals and creatures of the water Again to your beauty it does not compare Now I have no choice but to look deeper – deeper into the earth’s secrets In to the heart of our planet where every molecule meet its one and only match Only to find the most extraordinary things - Better than the sun and all its radians - Better than the stars and the supernova - Better than the colours in the ocean - Even better than the tiny crystals of the ocean waters - And yet I have found that to your beauty it just does not compare So alas I turn to one side and look in the mirror – the beauty compares You are beautiful – just believe ?
