I found this piece, however I’m not sure what inspired it’s creation.

When your tears fall, let me be there to catch them,
When you are lonely, let me be there to bring you comfort,
When the sky is dark and raining, let me cover you,
When you feel that it is you against the world, let me protect you,
Beauty is only skin deep, but yours echoes through your heart,
Through the smile that crosses your face,
And through the laugh that crosses your lips,
So much is put before us, but it is what you choose to do with that,
Your heart is so precious, and you are a very important and beautiful woman.
