It's You I Like

I have been intrigued by Fred Rogers aka Mr. Rogers , since the new movie about him has been released. He was a very unassuming man with a very big heart and a genuine loving spirit regardless of who he met. I came across this poem while reading about him.  It spoke to me, hopefully it will speak to you as well.  

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 degrees
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!

(attributed to Fred Rogers aka- Mr. Rogers)
