    Song: "I'll Write A Song For You" Earth, Wind, and Fire


    The yellow sun rises in the east
    Crawls in my window
    Dances over your face
    On the right
    Lighting you perfectly
    Painting you in amber and gold.
    Warm.

    I sit up
    And gaze.
    Watch.
    Study.
    Melt soft in love.
    You are my muse.

    I reach for my pen
    And journal
    And overwhelmed with awed inspiration
    I create.
    I indulge.
    I consume your quiet beauty
    And with words I could never speak
    I write.

    The sun sets to the west
    Resting perfectly on you
    On the left
    Shading you calmly with orange, purple and blues.
    Cool.

    The beach breeze draws us closer together
    Watching the sea rise and fall
    The breaking waves silent
    Against my heart's rushing roar
    I pull a folded note from my pocket
    this morning's musing
    Read softly,

    "I wanna take a picture of you...
    And then make it move.
    I wanna record a single sigh...
    And then make it the blues.
    I wanna paint a single stroke...
    And then make it a mural.
    I want to write your name on paper...
    And then make it the news.
    And at the end of all this art,
    When my personal exhibit is done,
    And on display in my heart,
    Please sign,
    "Love, Your Muse."

    I wonder what she will inspire
    Tomorrow.
