Beautiful

You take away my breath
It catches in my throat
My head’s up in the clouds
I feel like I can float
An unexpected kiss
Or a simple, knowing grin
Is enough for me to melt
And make butterflies begin
Your shining, happy face
With eyes alight with care
A dimple in your cheek
And gorgeous windswept hair
But I think your soul
Who you are in whole
Is honest and true what makes you, you
And makes you beautiful
