    Never Saw It In Myself
    By Monad.poetress


    I never saw it in myself...the beauty he said I possessed
    He said it was in the way I smiled and to him I was the best
    I never saw the pride he said shined through my eyes
    He said true beauty needs no tools for true beauty never dies
    I never saw it in myself....the warmth in my embrace
    He said I know you are the one for me..with you is my place
    I never saw the pretty smile or the soft hands he loved to touch
    And every time I hear his voice I miss him way too much
    I never saw it in myelf...the sweetness he seems to love
    He says things like this don't just happen...I was sent from above
    I never knew I could cook....but he says he loves my food
    He knows how to come to me and change every bad mood
    I never thought I was unique....it never crossed my mind
    He said I am a prize to him...I deserve to we wined and dined
    I never thought that I would be the apple of someone's eye
    I found myself within a man...and I didn't even try

    He said true beauty needs no tools for true beauty never dies...listen to him because truer words have seldom been spoken. This is such a wonderful poem. Welcome to a place you'll never want to leave. keep up the good work, waiting for more.

    When we learn what we are to another, it can open up a new chapter in ourselves. This was very nice. Welcome to destee.

    Welcome Sister...

    Indeed...we often do not see
    the epitomy of beauty we possess...
    which I feel is the beautiful way in how
    love arrives...
    when we least...expect it

    Beautifully expressed work!

    Thanks for sharing with us!

    I :heart: this it is so sweet. It's sometimes hard to see ourselves the way others do, but you are lucky to have someone who lets you know what he loves about you.
