When first we met, you seemed so shy,
Your 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,
Your smile once frown, began to bloom,
Enchanting change forthcoming
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,
Erasing all guilt your smile now chastens.
From deep within, your heart so pure,
You brought forth passion.
With strength of spirit, you destroyed self-denials,
To answer call of love that beckons.
Defeat the call for all perfection,
Accept yourself, an incredible person.
If love you feel, withhold it not,
Reap the joy of your beloved’s charms,
Your time has come, your smile shines bright,
A beacon to all, let none deny,
New chapter of life commences,
Receive love’s bounty with open arms.
