Virtuosity


Carefully watching, aware of the past
We forge a new love that is destined to last
A virtuous love, honest and thoughtful
Conscious and candid, careful and moral

Our love that’s authentic, deep and real,
Intensifying each day, the way that we feel
Sharing one life built on total sincerity
Treating each other with respect and dignity

We are worthy of love, we learned from the years
To be kind, to be upright or it will end in tears
A bounty of love there to be discovered
Self-awareness to be mindfully uncovered

Passion, compassion and humanity
Generosity of soul and gravity
Earnest, kind and with sincerity
The endless quest for virtuosity
