The Picture Book

 

But one day in this speek of light

Capturing fewer simple rhymes

Just a moment sum of time

Imagining all the steps we took

 

            To look like me

            To look like you

            Like me, like you

 

For one thread in this tapestry

Intertwining many mysteries

With two eyes and a picture book

Imagining all the steps we took

 

            To look like me

            To look like you

            Like me, like you

 

Reasoning a tapestry

Intertwining many mysteries

Is for two and a picture book

And living all the steps we took

 

            To look like me

            To look like you

            Like me, like you

 

For two eyes and a picture book

And living all the steps we took

 

            To look like me

            To look like you

            Like me, like you
