Beauty lies within

Beauty exists not in what we look like 

But in who we truly are 

Beauty is in our actions 

Our empathy 

Our understanding of each other 

Beauty exists in the selfless 

The people who take a moment 

To show kindness to someone in pain 

This makes someone beautiful 

Not the outer layer, the skin 

Beauty lies within 

I float away in dreams

I float away in dreams 

This is where I will stay

Trying to escape the pain 

This is where I will remain 

Sometimes it is easy to escape 

Sometimes it is not 

Finding peace 

Finding true happiness

Is all I have ever wanted

All I have ever sought 

With each breath I take 

I want to float away 

To a place where

Streams flow through the valley 

Flowers bloom so bright 

I follow the stream with no end in sight 

This is where I long to be 

Walking among the stream 

With peace in my heart 

Floating away in this beautiful place 

The one thing I can depend on 

The one thing that is mine

I am just a dreamer

I am just a dreamer 

Looking for beauty in everything I see

Especially the people around me 

There is something I am missing 

Something I have not found

In the meantime I live within these dreams

Of different places and different faces 

Of valleys, rivers, and streams 

Ancient and modern cities with people everywhere

Learning the way they live and how they get from here to there

This is where I go when life drags me down 

This is where a path lies ahead waiting for me

My dreams will show me the way to my destiny

Perfection

When he looks at her he sees perfection

Beauty that is beyond words

Feelings that stir as quickly as the tide rips from the sea

This is what I want him to see when he looks at me

Beauty and Grace

She has such beauty 

She has such grace 

When I see her she makes my heart race 

What I wouldn’t do to win her heart 

If she took my hand I would never let her go

Oh my darling I just need you to know 

That my love for you will only continue to grow

As the colors fade

Today I dream of fields with flowers 

Valleys and streams of beauty 

Today I see the colors light up the sky 

As the wind picks up and lifts the leaves up high 

I wait and watch as the colors fade…as the sun starts to set and the moon begins to rise 

It is in between this time…right before the darkness comes…that I see your eyes

Loved beyond time

I want to be loved beyond measure

I want to feel completely happy and free

I want to hold the hand of my one true love and feel him beside me

I want to smile and laugh

I want to run into his arms

I want that moment to last forever

I want that moment to stay in my mind…

I want a love that will surpass the end of time

Dreams

I wish that I could be calmer

More mild and less extreme

But then I wouldn’t be myself

Then I wouldn’t dream

Of people and places I want to see

Of things I can only imagine exist

I fear that if I don’t move forward I will never get to see the world

I fear that if I am not perfect I will never get past this loop that is my life

I dream of fields of beauty

I dream of the oceans song

I dream that I will find this place…this place that I belong

I would finally be at peace…my wandering thoughts would calm

I will find you someday my beautiful place…my heart…my home

 

Sunset from the street

The beauty of the rain

I wake up and I fight today

As the rain falls from the sky

I wonder why sometimes sadness grips me

As I wait for you and I…

To find that special place…to find that common ground

In the meantime I listen as the rain falls

I listen to the sound

So peaceful it makes me feel today

The beauty of the rain

It slows my beating heart

It slowly heals the pain
