True Beauty

True Beauty

When you offer me your hand,
Which say, “Yes, I understand”

And when kindness from your eyes,
Touches me deep inside,

I know now where it lies-
This true beauty.

In a lingering tune,
In the mellow full moon,
In the joy of a mother,
Beholding no other,
Than her new born child.

In the rain which swells a farmer’s heart,
In patches of sweet-smelling grass,
Tender and mild,
Which bow,
To mark that spot you’ve been sitting.

In the veins on a father’s hand,
Which hardens in a fist,
As he commands,
That his son be punished.

In the quick embraces,
Before the party starts,
The clanging of the glasses,
As friends wash them afterwards.

Beauty lies not in French perfume,
Nor on smoothly painted faces.
Beauty is not to be crooned,
Nor attained
in any expenses.
Beauty can never be sought in any outlets,
Or fancy malls.

Come closer so my breath will tell you,
How beauty is natural like air.
It is always there.

Lean on me so my pulse will tell you,
How beauty is natural like love.
It always comes,
When you least expect it.

There,
Can you feel it?

Can you feel it
When I hold your strong hand,
And say, “I know you understand”

And when tears brim in my eyes,
As they reach the sublime…

Do you know now where it lies-
This true beauty?

    .... a poem of real beauty indeed!

    yes, true beauty is listening to your heart, for the heart has reasons, which reason itself cannot understand…..
