My beginning was knotted to you
For I have not seen anyone as beautiful as you
Simple and black
Do you love me, as I do you?

You became a part of me
You are my heartbeat, as wise as you are
You are immortal to me
You taught me words
That seek my soul
And spell my thoughts
Are you real?

Amid the mess I made, you lay
Quiet yet powerful, for all to see and hold
For we seek your guidance and wisdom
As your beauty shines in a distance
Who made you?

What makes you so wonderful?
Forever be mine as I am yours
And promise me
To teach others as you have taught me
The power of words
