I recently came across this poem by Sam Levenson which is just lovely and sweet, so I thought I’d share it with you.
It was apparently a favourite poem of one of the most beautiful women of all time, Audrey Hepburn.
So my friends, if you want to be as beautiful as Miss Audrey, then take heed of these lovely, simple words…
Time Tested Beauty Tips
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, let a child run his
or her findres through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed,
revived, reclaimed and redeemed: never throw out anyone.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand,
you’ll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands;
one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she loveling gives,
the passion that she knows.
And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!
