When Beauty Hurts

It’s a tricky thing, beauty.

We chase it.

We praise it.

We protect, nurture and tend it with such precision and care.

The world loves a thing of beauty.

To look at you brings such joy to my heart.

Pride inexplicable.

Fear undeniable.

The beauty within you is stunning. A sight to behold.

Not just beauty of skin; face; hair; smile – for those you possess in excess. But beauty of heart; character; compassion.

Please, Time, slow down. Pause. Breathe.

I fear my heart cannot take it if you become more beautiful than you are this very minute.
