If it's the only thing I do

I'll keep alive my faith in you

I gave a lot away

But one thing I've never done

Is given up hope

By taking my eyes off the horizon

I know they say no one can keep love from fading

It's not unlike watching a ship sail out to sea

Each day there's no return, you weaken from waiting

Until all love is gone, but they'll never prove that by me.

(That's the song I listened to over and over while
drawing his portrait.)

Laura J. Smith
