I wished only to portray him as you saw him.
To do this, I surrendered my breath to you,
let your face be the face in my dreams,
let your voice be the voice that guided me,
let your hand be the hand that shaped me.
Only then could I be what I must be, do I what must do
feel what I must feel to achieve my purpose,
.... to shine in your eyes
Then take all of that back and put it away until
it would be needed again, knowing that it is
forever better because for the time that was,
it was yours.
