The Only Two People in the World
He saw past the blemishes in me
that others scorned me for,
My outer skin he would not see,
He only saw what was in my heart's core.
He paid no heed to what others said,
My words were all he ever heard.
It mattered not that others stared.
To him, we were the only two people in the world.
