Poem By Audrey Hepburn

23 Jul

This poem was written by Audrey Hepburn herself and read at her funeral. I find it to be truly inspiring and it sincerely displays the type of woman Audrey Hepburn (one of my idols) truly was. She was strong, confident, feminine and empowering; and hopefully for many years to come women can learn from her and embrace Audrey’s traits in their own lifestyles.

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.

Now that you have read this beautiful poem, what are your thoughts??

With Love,

    I can’t resist reblogging Audrey Hepburn’s poem. I read it for the first time today when it was posted on fb by a bereaved friend.
