She is the Rising and the Eve,

Life that knows the way to breathe:

Living like Love should be proved.

She paints the world around her now

With colors, motion, swirling round

Her paintings on my wall are true.

It makes me laugh to see them there

A painted story bold and fair

She knows that art is love and will

Just like the life she lives and paints

Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it’s quaint

But it’s never sitting still.

She’s thoughtful, strong, and full of light

And she believes that all her life

Has purpose and great meaning

So even now, while she is young

Her songs and paintings seem to yearn

Toward her Creator’s leading.
