A lyric written for my best friend and mentee, Rose, whom I have so much in common with.
What are 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 cannot tell,
a crafty girl that's light of task
whose thoughts are 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 are to me a map and chart 
to navigate life's hardships thru—
the answer to my joyless heart
and to a world that I did rue:
and now you're the sublimest part
of my life's design which ensues.
