By Roy Dela Cruz
If I were a poet to paint your beauty
You know I will do it with all honesty
Though with paints and brushes I cannot do
I will use words that can only speak true
You are a face so young and so innocent
With a smile to cheer even a weary heart
Glowing eyes that can only be you
And a hair gently bathed by midnight hue
Your hands are soft like that of velvet
A walk like a swan, so graceful and fine
A voice that bespeaks of youth and innocence
And the rare, rare charm of a real lady
But then you know that words are not enough
To paint a picture of your enchanting beauty
Cause yours is a beauty more than words
could ever speak...
You really are beautiful
March 25, 1990
