What I heard you say last night
Has stuck within my head
I was speechless
Here is what I would have said

You are the lioness
Your strength has gone unmatched
In your eyes the flitting trembles
Of the beast and its prey

You are beautiful
Don't deny it for a moment
For when you shine
No diamond can compare

I wish I could make things better for you
I know life has not been kind
I cannot imagine what you've been through
If only I could make your troubles go away

I admire you so much
You'll take what comes for you
You are unstoppable, irrepressible
I know you can make it through

Love,

The Quiet One
