I love you
for the way you see me
the way you have others see me
not as I see myself
but as a goddess
an inspiration
of word
space and time
which I may become
if you only
to believe
in me

Thanks to The Mag

Oh, that's lovely. And from what I have read, probably pretty close to what she really thought.
