Beauty is not your age

Beauty is not the color of your eyes

Beauty is not the color or length of your hair

Beauty is not the shape or size of what you wear

Beauty is not the car you drive in

or the house you live in

What can adorn your beauty

is not what defines your beauty

What’s inside of you is beauty

The unfading and everlasting beauty that lives on

The beauty that only grows with time and sacrifice

Beauty that fears nothing

Beauty that sees beauty even through the dark

Beauty that shines and warms the world around

You, mother and wife

You, who perseveres and never stops

You, friend and sister

You, simply and magnificently you
