Beautiful

I want to say you're beautiful
but the word isn't strong enough--
how do I explain to you what I see
when I look at you, body and soul ?
think of everything you find beautiful:
the sunsets of your home state;
the majesty of the full moon;
the inexplicable spark behind the
eyes of a child.
take all the beauty that steals your
breath away and pour it into a word
that only your soul uses to describe
said beauty.
for you, that word is now overflowing
but if I were to take everything you
found beautiful and pour it into a word
that only my soul uses to describe you...
well, barely a letter is filled.
