a child's love

a boy of age six called me beautiful today

it stunned me for a moment, and took my breath away

this is something I had never heard in a not sarcastic tone

his eyes reflected the most sincerity that I had ever known

he'd been taught to love the precious things, and say what's on his mind

and with those words he spoke to me, his voice proved true and kind
