Beautiful

by Jeanne Asha Lemba

Heís not even rich, aní I want to spend time with him 
He doesnít dress to impress, aní has holes in his shirts 
Hair isnít always combed, aní I couldnít care less 
Cozí when he tells me he loves me,  I believe his every word 

His vocabulary is slang, aní he only speaks one language 
He doesnít know what the future holds, aní braves each day as the last 
Stays quiet, when I can tell heís hurting, aní I couldnít care less 
Cozí He masters my emotions, aní provides me respect 

He has a child, aní Im not the babyís mother 
He runs crazy, aní making money to give him a better life 
Some days, he doesnít eat: the funds he lacks, aní I couldnít care less 
Cozí when weíre between 4 walls: Just me&himÖ 

He cries, in front of me, aní heals me even though heís hurting 
He stays honest, aní even if the truth isnít joyful to hear 
Has me worried, each day, aní I couldnít care less 
Cosí Heís my SoulmateÖ Heís so Beautiful.
