When beauty is smeared ugly

and my dreams leave me unable to sleep

It is your voice I seek

When journey's end threatens completion

and tomorrows ambition stalls

It is your touch I seek

When desire is extinguished

and my heart a steady pace

It is your smile I embrace

When a book well read

is pages of promises broken

It is your wisdom I quote
