For her
Andramelach

For all the hard and sill things
 1
that threaten to sink my soul
 2
there are but many things
 3
that soar and bind my darkness
 4
 
 
If not for truth and purpose
 5
that I find
 6
there would be little
 7
save for shadow
 8
to save me from the dusk
 9
 
 
These are my dreams
 10
They are my eyes
 11
 
 
They are everything to behold
 12
as there is little about you
 13
that is not splendid
 14
 
 
With them
 15
my desires
 16
I chance to lighten and hue
 17
The lovely eyes and lips
 18
that have remained as cold
 19
Before the sun
 20
 
 
But with each passing moment
 21
As I paint this portrait
 22
By the by, it is easy to see
 23
 
 
This blanc face of mine
 24
finds a way
 25
 
 
Through each stroke to become
 26
something very close but far
 27
 
 
And as I gaze upon this face
 28
I weep and awe
 29
 
 
For the title
 30
that is easy to tell
 31
 
 
Caitlin is this paint of love
 32
As upon this canvas of life.
