Only A Picture


Only a picture

I have of you
A picture

Of pure love so true
Vivid dreams

Of love and joy
So beautiful

And proud
To have you in my life
Body in scar

Or limb or what
No matter what may be
Could let me love you less you see
Love is in the soul
Looks are not for real
Inside is what matters most of all
True love see no evil
In the eye of love
It's who you are

And to me
You the most beautiful thing
That came into my life
I have a picture of you
I see your lovely face
I see your shame
I see your fame
I see your name
Nobody can take your place
My love

My picture
