One day I will invent a lovely face
And fill it with familiar emotions.
I'll color it will passion, strength, and grace,
With wit and wisdom, deep as sky and ocean.
I'll cover it with lace of years passed
Then add a touch of tenderness and courage.
I will erase the shadows losses cast,
Enhance experience, and never-ending knowledge.
I'll step aside for him to breathe, and feel, and see,
And live his myth through hopes, and dreams, and actions
And then I will abandon him and flee
To recreate my yet another passion.
