But beauty is not just in the eyes of the beholder
Music told me, like earrings, it lies also in the beholder's ears.
And when years come to pass we lose sight and grow older,
Is there no more beauty? What about what the beholder hears?
Where there's pleasure beauty is the satisfaction
In happiness, beauty is the smiles worn on people's face.
Beauty is not in the possession but lies greatly in the promotion,
Not when you win the race but in the passion you had when picking up the pace!
There is beauty in being human, be you neither blind nor deaf
For life is not the words you hear or the pictures you see, it is a journey
Of the spirit, and when at a moment in time will death meet life half
Way, beauty never dies in God, is loved and tastes sweet like honey.
Truly the eye of heaven sees beauty everyday
For it shines light with warmth all day and we don't have to pay.
