Point the Way
You point the way
to beauty's rendezvous
predilections I embrace
the sum of my hope's desires
you may not be the one
instead a signpost with the hints
of what I wish for in my heart
of what I long for in my soul
we'll have our time in these days
I'll record the interplays
appreciating what you may bring
to life's exquisite masquerade
education by present company
the best of the world's assembly
I've seen the face of the belle
what more could I ask it to foretell?
in another lifetime, not in this place
if fates had been more kind
these notes would be replaced
by experience embraced by us
that is not the case sweet one
so I'll take what is offered
appreciate the sights and sounds
within this realm that fades away.

I am surrounded by amazingly lovely people. Though our interactions are limited, I learn much about myself and what I find beautiful in life. The poem “Point the Way” is about that journey.
