There Is No Beauty For Me


THERE IS NO BEAUTY FOR ME / LIKE THE FACE OF A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

There is no beauty for me,
Like the face of a beautiful woman-
How from childhood
The pleasure of seeing
Has been my sin-

And still in old age
When desire cannot even feel itself
That pleasure that longing that beauty-

There is no beauty
Like the face of a beautiful woman.

    God has moulded your heart to be longing to look at the beautiful face to enjoy pleasure. Old or young, mind kick starts just to have a look at. A brief, inner feeling is beautifully expressed. Cheers! (Report) Reply
