Today's Beautiful Gem: "It's you I like" by Fred Rogers
of Rogers' Neighborhood fame.

"It's you I like,
It's not the things you wear,
It's not the way you do your hair,
But, it's you I like.

"The way you are right now,
The way down deep inside you--
Not the things that hide you,
Not your toys--
They're just beside you.

"But it's you I like,
Every part of you,
Your skin, your eyes, your feelings,
Whether old or new.

"I hope that you'll remember
Even when you're feeling blue
That it's you I like.
It's you yourself, it's you.
It's you... I... like."

Om Saantih! Peace! - J. K. Mohana Rao
