Beautiful You Are

Beautiful you are,
Amazing you'd be.
If only, if only you'd see what I see.
Take a look from within,
Let your true colors shine.
You'd see that being you is no sin.
Maybe then you'd be fine.
It doesn't matter what they say.
Nor what they want.
I know the real you at the end of the day;
Their opinions will only haunt.
They don't see who I see:
For I know who you be.
So never feel like you're on your own;
With me, your true identity is always shone.
Never let them make you unwilling to be you,
For they've never walked a step in your shoes.
You're beautiful and you don't have to try,
So never be fooled by all of their lies.
You're as close to perfect as can be;
Beautiful, caring, funny-- if only you'd see.
Leanne, you're my closest friend.
And I know that, with you, there is no end;
Constantly supportive, and always there,
Forever willing, with continuous care.
Beautiful you are, and amazing too.
So never let them take that; always be you.
