Beautiful People…

People are beautiful, people like you;
Sensitive, dutiful, tender and true;
When life is clouded by sadness or fear,
And hopes dissolve in a sigh or a tear –
Love, like a sunbeam, will
come shining through;

For people are beautiful – people like you.
There’re many things that
this world can afford,
Much to bring pleasure and much to reward;
Yet it is people that make life worthwhile;
Adds to its colour; its richness; its style.
There’s so much that’s precious,
exciting and new,
In beautiful people – people like you.

People are beautiful, such beauty shines.
Deep in the heart where
with love it entwines;
Forging a bond that time ne’er shall erase.
Safe in the soul where, in
power, it displays
Caring b’yond measure and sensitive too,
Such are the beautiful people, like you.

People are powerful; people with power,
Hold the world’s fate in their
hands by the hour;
Power to create or power to destroy,
Power to abandon or power to employ;
Where people have heart’s
that are noble and true,
Then are they beautiful people; like you?

If I must choose b’tween riches and wealth,
Promise of power, high status, good health;
Drop in a “Someone who’s loving
and kind”,
And there could ne’er be a
doubt in my mind;
‘Salt of the Earth’ and its “seasoning’ too;
People are beautiful – sensitive, dutiful,
Radiantly beautiful; people like you!
