"If youre a bird, Im a bird."

Matters of the heart;
When it comes to matters of the heart…
Who knows how things will be,
Because when it comes from the heart its not all about what you see.
I look into your eyes and see tons of wondrous beauty.
I wish you could see what my heart sees,
Kindness, life, beauty, peace, and goodness are what I see,
You may not think you are beautiful,
But I want to scream it from the rooftops that you are.
If I told you, you would just say “you don’t know me”…
And I would reply yes I do, you are you…
You are you and you are beautiful.
With the reply of no I am not…I would say yes. you are…
Because when it comes to matters of the heart its not all about what you see,
My heart looks and sees only beauty when it sees you
All I see is beauty when I see you…

The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by my best friend Eli. He is very modest and he does not give himself very much credit. He means so much to me and he has honestly inspired me to write a lot of poems. This was the first poem inspired by him that I wrote. He is beautiful inside and out.
