Thereís beauty in the light of her dark face
Inviting me to learn her eyes, her soul.
An ardent search, to her, would be too bold.
The sunís eclipse holds danger in its grace.
A womanís childís within her common fold,
A child this child within me wants to know;
To find the source of light and know the place
That understands the question in her smile.
From there she lets you view the radiant light.
Always will I wonder if she could see
My bewilderment when she smiled at me.
Long might I live, regretting all the while,
Never knowing her, whom I hoped I might.
