This piece of paper is white and blank,
and is eagerly waiting to be writ on it; I tried
to write your name on it, and sign it off with a smile;
but it did not look right,
I knew how your name looked when written
on a paper, in colors and with decorations along the side;
I wiped clean the paper, and instead wrote my name in black,
left it hidden for you to find it one day,
and sign it with care,
when you are searching hard for a smile…
