i pause for perfection earned (yours)
by Theodora (Theo) Onken
And a reflection of days gone by...
As this unfolding excellence is enough
While we gaze at a star lit sky.
Dreamers dream their own dreams...
Their audience - in balcony's ever high
The velvet curtain upon a grand stage (opens)
So, too, the reflection's of days gone by.
The truth never leaves you (ever)
As sure as actors know their lines...
For once, they were merely caterpillar's crawling
Now as lofty butterflies perched upon the vine.
Pretend this is for the movies (partially)
And for a child's idle play as time does, indeed, fly
Where 'reality' is as the footlight's shining brilliantly (always)
So too, as my reflection's of my many days gone by.
