You Are Beautiful

Oh my dearest friend, 
Why are you sobbing silently in that little corner?
Look! The meadow full of spring flowers now laid in front of you,
Set free and the bleak winter shall be ended.

Oh my sweetest friend,
Why is your heart crooning a torch song,
Feeling nothing but unwanted,
Listen! Angels carolling around you,
Warming the cold night with the candle light,
Indeed, you are loved.

Oh my beloved friend,
Though times never last,
Hide not your tears,
Let it run down your cheek, 
Wash away the pain of yesterday, 
Salvage the remaining goodness, 
And bring it with you to the next journey.

Oh my prettiest friend,
It's not easy but this ache will soon be over,
Put on your smile and doubt not yourself,
Afraid not to show your true colours, 
For they are beautiful like a rainbow.

Food for Thought

"Relationships, no matter how good, are inevitably a series of compromises. But how much of ourselves should we be willing to sacrifice for the other person before we stop being ourselves? In a relationship, when does the art of compromise become compromising?" - Bradshaw, Carrie, Sex And The City
