  Raina you are beautiful

From every fiber within you

To every inch of your outward appearance


I always used to be jealous

Of your tiny figure,

Your pretty hair


I always used to covet

Your bright personality,

Your love for life


Now I finally see

That your physical appearance

Is not something worth jealousy

But something worth appreciation


Now I understand

That your great personality

Does not deserve to be coveted

But deserves to be embraced


My first impression of you

Was the exact opposite of the truth

I thought you didn't like me

Because I never took the time to really get to know you


I'm sorry for all the things I've said

The times I jumped to conclusions

Said things behind your back

I'm sorry I kept refusing to see the wonderful girl you are


I tried to steal your light

I wanted all your glory

I craved your beautiful spirit

I desperately wished I could have your self-assurance


I want you to know I take everything back

I know it is late

The past cannot be undone

But this is a hope for the future


I hope that we will always be friends

Comfort each other

Through life's rough moments


Just like me, you sometimes fall

Shatter like shards of glass

I want to be there to help piece you back together


Raina you are awesome

Amazing in so many ways

You are my inspiration, my guide, and my friend
