I thought you could not be more beautiful. and then you were — December 18

I thought you could not be more beautiful. and then you were
The holiday spirits are in awe
The swirl of beauty, the scent of the season
It is clear the radiance I saw

Your eyes are better than any ornament can shine
Your lips underscore any definition of glisten
Your voice is magical, captivating, alluring
Of course I am transfixed as I listen

Where did this gift come from to me?
And when may I unwrap it with glee?
For you are so beautiful and then you are some more
I am selfish, and want only for me

Yet the present you are is not just that beauty
But the holiday fire in your heart
Your love, your soul, your wonderful smile
They are what sets you apart

So swirl and twirl at the holiday fete
We will dance fast and then we’ll dance slow
Then I will take your hand and lead you away
and, finally, undo that great bow
