Throwback Friday: A Real Beauty by prikcab (Ian Perlman)


with a smile that brightens my every day

with a heart always open to all in need

with a true soul that guides confidently towards the unknown

with love for family and friends that refuses to be contained

with eyes that sparkle, light and comfort all around you

with strength that challenges the most arduous of test

losing some locks will not drain your beauty or your fight

your overwhelming aura from within continues to shine unmatched

hair will return where the beauty is that never left


I wrote this piece about 8 years ago. Prompted by my wife beginning to lose her hair as a result of her cancer treatment. Beauty is from within.
