I used to talk of golden hair
And eyes of crystal blue

I never pointed out these things
When speaking about you

I love tanned skin and freckles, and
Strong hands to hold for sure

I’ve never known those things in you…
But I’ve known so much more.

You may not be a model, if
I’m working just by sight

But when I see you smile, I
Am bathed in golden light

Your laughter shakes my spirit, and
Your touch can make me whole

There’s beauty in your every step
Because I see your soul
