“you’re beautiful” I said
She lifted her head, looked at me and asked
“where do you see any beauty at all?”
I could tell that she doubtful so I gracefully walked over to her.
“over here” I said and placed my hand over her heart.
“oh little caterpillar” I whispered
“I can’t wait for you to spread your wings“
I paused, wiped her tears and held onto her so tightly
“and see for yourself the beauty that I see in you”
