What True Beauty Is

 A brave soul
A kind heart
An open mind

A tender touch
A confident gaze
The passionate kind

The curious type
A willingness joined
Attraction entwined

The river’s release
The flower that opens
And the ocean of sun that they find

The rising waters
The fountains crest
The basin below

Reflecting the smile
On the youthful face
And the beauty he’s come to know

The glorious vision before him
It seems the dream was not only his
Only by being and sharing what we are given
Can we then find what true beauty is.
