How we need to believe what we say is true

How we need to understand the words we hear as real

But, how can we?

Some may say it is trust

Others my think it is love

And I, I know it is the honesty I see in the glow of your eyes.


How we need to feel the sounds of laughter around us as joy

How we need to share the thoughts we dream as pure

But, how can we?

Some may say it is fate

Others may think it is good luck

And I, I know it is the honesty I hear in the calm of your voice.


How we need to express the touches of our hands as grace

How we need to extend the feelings of our hearts in words

But, how can we?

Some may say it is the will of God

Others may think it is just the way of life

And I, I know it is the honesty I feel in the kiss of your lips.




Delicate portrait study full of emotion and character. Strong use of toned down colours and expressive lines with soft edges. Thoughtful and reflective expression in th eyes.
