Everyone Deserves A Love Letter Like The One This 8-Year-Old Wrote Beyoncé
It's weird when you reach an age to know (or date, in this circumstance) people old enough to be teachers.
An Imgur user's girlfriend teaches 8-year olds during the summer, and one of them, when tasked with writing a letter “to someone you admire,” wrote the most important piece of writing since the Declaration of Independence. (Oh, not the Declaration of Independence you're thinking of. I'm talking about what my ex-girlfriend called her breakup email to me.)
If you can't read coolest-kid-on-the-planet handwriting, allow me to help you out. Here is a transcript of the greatest love letter ever written.
Dear, Beyoncé — my favorite singer, You are the best you are a rare rose in a garden of blooming flowers but your the only one who shoots out sparkle and lite up the sky. My favorite song is sorry that song be popin I be turnt up.
Now, just for comparison, try reading Shakespeare's most famous sonnet about love, and you'll see how shamefully lusterless Shakespeare seems when juxtaposed with the brilliance of this child's passion.
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer's lease hath all too short a date. Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, And often is his gold complexion dimmed; And every fair from fair sometime declines, By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed; But thy eternal summer shall not fade, Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st, Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade, When in eternal lines to Time thou grow'st. So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see, So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
I mean, dude doesn't even mention Beyoncé ONCE. Not ONCE.
Step your game up, Bill.
