Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A lyric written for my best friend and mentee, Rose, whom I have so much in common with.
What were you to me may I ask?
    And may I answer you real well?
You were at first a secret masque
    of balls whose guests I could not tell,
a sly girl that was light of task
    whose thoughts were like a hidden dell.

Oh, but now you're a raven-haired
    with state and rank fit for a queen; 
a soul who has most often dared
    to be the friend I've seldom seen,
the one to whom I gave and shared
    my quiet hopes that might have been!

You're now to me a map and chart 
    to navigate life's hardships through—
the answer to my joyless heart
    and to a world that I did rue:
as well, you're the sublimest part
    of my life's journey which ensues.
