child of beauty

to one of beauty
may these few humble words
in some unbroken
but sincere way
bring a feeling suppressed
as others have been
to a light of forgiving memories
the beauty
you must know
is born deep within
from a heart which has throbbed forth a love
and the beauty so true
so vast
so untamed
shows from also in the air of passing
so unmarked
in radiance aghast
for the slender weak of the world
to behold
maybe touch
too humble for none
for it shines where a shadow lay
do not change
child of beauty
let another behold
for you show a hope where one doubts
and although you will leave
for a few hours or more
please remember even as you forget
you helped a dying orphan to survive
