Life was so much simpler as a child
You could play and just go wild
Seeing only laughter and beauty
around you and then you grew up.
Do you know how beautiful you are?
the last few years, I could barely see you
you were so tiny, I feared hugging you,
crushing your bones, you were that small;
I remember seeing you back then…
the wind was blowing and I could swear
it was pushing you farther from where
I was sitting on the park bench waiting
watching, silently observing you wasting
away and praying for a miracle.
That was two years ago my friend,
now the miracle did transcend
you are beautiful just as you are.
Too bad you don’t see that far
and that soon you will eat a little…
purge a lot, and you will never settle
for healthy, because you don’t see
YOU as you are, you miss all that beauty.
Alas, I pray that someday your insight
will see beauty within, as well as in the light
of day…blessings my friend.
