When first we met, you seemed so shy,
countenance bold yet bearing meek.
What knowledge did I, curious old soul,
Hope to garner from one so young?
Day did come, you felt heart free,
smile once frown, began to bloom,
In well-spring of life, your voice far-flung.
Be there vast wisdom, in so endearing a smile,
That even the wise, must bow,
New perceptions did flow like manna,
Once your voice of youth unchained.
You awoke your dreams, cast off evil spells,
Did challenge those who scorned you.
To attacks so grievous,
Defiance your blade unrestrained.
Were that man, never humble as much,
Attempt your path, unaided.
Yet you, in your wisdom disproved all fault,
all guilt your smile now chastens.
From deep within, your heart so pure,
brought forth passion.
With strength of spirit, you destroyed self-denials,
answer call of love that beckons.
Defeat the call for all perfection,
Accept yourself, an incredible person.
If love you feel, withhold it not,
the joy of your beloved’s charms,
Your time has come, your smile
beacon to all, let none deny,
New chapter of
Receive love’s bounty with open
