Just The Way You Are

Random, but whatever. I love it. I hope you do.

I know what you're thinking.

I see it in your eyes.

I know that look.

I know you too well.

You can't hide that from me.

$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#

Her eyes, her eyes make the stars look like their not shining.

Her hair, her hair, falls perfectly without her trying.

She's so beautiful

And I tell her everyday.

$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#

I know, this is different for you. It is for all of us. It's hard. But we have to make do.

I know, you aren't used to living like this. You used to live in a big house. Now you're here.

I understand. I know what it's like, to be shunned. I know what it's like to be thought of as dirty and nothing.

Remember that river? I was on one side, you were on the other. Somehow, you got here, to my side- the side nobody wants to be on. But we can cross together, back to where you were.

I know, I know, when I compliment her she won't believe me.

And it's so, it's so, sad to think that she don't see what I see.

But every time she asks me "Do I look OK?", I say . . .

I know things have changed. I really do. I cannot express that enough. But look! Things are getting better! Better conditions, better wages, better jobs! We're a family again! I know, he's not here. I miss him too, just as much as you do. He was like a father to me too. He was there for me- He treated me like his own son. He gave me things- priviliges- that no one else would give me. He never broke a promise to me. I miss him. We all do.

I know, that boost of self-confidence has vanished in you. You feel that, without any money and without fancy clothes, you're worthless. But you're not! You're the most precious thing ever!

When I see your face

There's not a thing that I would change

'Cause girl

You're amazing

Just the way your are.

And when you smile

The whole world stops and stares for a while

'Cause girl

You're amazing

Just the way you are

I never cared about how shiny your hair was. I never felt how soft your hands were. I only saw you. When you would show me a new dress or a new pair of shoes, when you would tell me about how beautiful you looked now that you had them, I wouldn't care. I thought you were beautiful anyway.

Now, your hair is in a braid, straight down your back. Your hands are rough. Your shoes are worn, your clothes are dirty. Do I care? No. You're still you. You're still so beautiful to me.

You look at yourself in the mirror. You cringe. I watch you. I see you.

But you're beautiful!

$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#

Her lips, her lips, I could kiss them all day if she'd let me.

Her laugh, her laugh, she hates, but I think it's so sexy.

She's so beautiful,

And I tell her everyday.

Oh, you know, you know, you know, I'd never ask you to change.

If perfect's what you're looking for

Then just stay the same.

So don't even bother asking if you look OK.

You know I'll say . . .

$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#!$#

One day, I really hope, with all of my heart, that you will realize how wonderful you are.

How beautiful you are.

I hope that I can convince you, that you have worth.

I hope I can.

And I will.

I know I will.

And remember-

No matter what you look like or what you think you look like, you're always going to be beautiful.

And I'm always going to love you.

There will be another fic up, sort of a sequel to that. I love reviews!
