Though I am no artist
Your dream I would draw
Paint me your “perfect”
Without any flaw

Describe every detail
Leave nothing out
All that you desire
Can’t live without

Paint with you words
Your heart on your sleeve
Tell me your secrets
Make me believe

That you know what you want
Your every yearning
Spell it all out
What leaves your heart searching?


I’ve no training in art
Can’t draw my name
But I’ll paint you your “perfect”
Complete with a frame

Tell me what moves you
Brings peace to mind
How do we soothe you
Your dreams intertwined

Let’s build your dreams
And make them ours
Discover a reality
That aligns with the stars

Our life together
Better than you’ve known
Paint me your “perfect,”
We’ll make it our own.
