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 thus 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.
So now you're the sublimest part
of my life's journey which ensues.
