If I Were An Artist


I’d paint your visage in the sky,
Carve your sculpture on the mountains,
So the world without doubt could behold
How beautiful you are,

If I were a mason,
I will build you a castle in my heart,
To carry you with me,
Wherever I go there, also shall you be,

If I were a musician,
I will compose a symphony with your name
For the wind to whisper in faraway lands,
Then teach the birds to sing it
As their lullaby to the world ev’ry night

If I were a poet,
I’ll make you immortal,
By composing a panegyric
For you so generations unborn,
Can learn of you,

If I were an astrologer,
I’ll make it a life goal to search
The heavens for the brightest star,
Then call the star your name,

If I were an explorer,
I’ll explore all the secret places of your heart,
Discover the unknown dimension to you,
Unearth the unfound treasures
Within you for the world to see,

But I’m just a humble me,
Who’s effort is for the world to know
How much it is you meant to me
For I can’t be me,
If not you to make me, me.

Salve magna parens frugum Saturnia tellus,
Magna virûm! tibi res antiquæ laudis et artis
Aggredior, sanctos ausus recludere fontes.
