lookıng ƒor a planε oƒ dεsırancε . .
What would I do when she came to the door?
Could I wear a broad, confident smile?

I searched for the perfect words.
I wanted to give a good impression.

She arrived with a calm, elegant beauty.
Her inner strength filled my heart with confidence.

I can’t remember my first faltering words.
What I planned to say fell to the floor unspoken.

Perhaps I found her intimidating.
My flaws led me to fear disgrace.

Now, every visit has become a joyful memory.
What seemed like weaknesses have been reformed.

My anxiety fled into a vanishing fog.
I am glad that I can smile at all our memories.
