Beauty Poem Loved by Audrey Hepburn

16 03 2011

I usually do not take email chains all that seriously, but this week I received one with something that caught my eye.  It was this lovely poem written by Sam Levenson.  The email going around said that Audrey Hepburn actually wrote it, but after a little internet research, I believe it was a favorite but she was not the author.  It was read at her funeral.  Take a moment to reflect.

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/her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you 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 will find one at the end of each of your arms. 

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.
