Portrait of a Heart

Heart untarnished by misuse
Genius son of common man
His father failed to understand
And broke him with abuse

Now he’s grown, touch of mystery
Swaying over hearts, like a rock song
Carved of oiled iron wood strong
Diving in his cool pool of creativity
Unbound but lacks freedom to be

Plethora of purity in his soul
Sovereign of that which he controls
But for damage, could be anything
Govern, teach, paint, or sing

His light is veiled in darkness
Lonely lover comes, dream’s kiss
Flying on threadbare carpet of magic
Always leaves before love is tragic

Tall as California redwood trees,
Rain that brings me to my knees
Kiss like a prince shakes me
Kiss that always awakens me

Trying to hold on, like fireflies
Chasing after rare butterflies
Capturing the rainbow’s end
In the leprechaun land of pretend

We will say we knew him when
Of course no one will believe us
When goodness and genius
Rewarded, are in style once again
