An Artist Comes to Paint You Lyrics

Give yourself a kiss.
If you live in China, don't look
somewhere else, in Tibet, or Mongolia.
If you want to hold the beautiful one,
hold yourself to yourself.

When you kiss the Beloved,
touch your own lips with your fingers.

The beauty of every woman and every man
is your own beauty.
The confusion of your hair
obscures that sometimes.

An artist comes to paint you
and stands with his mouth open.

Your love reveals your beauty,
but all coverings would disappear
if only for a moment your holding back
would sit before your generosity
and ask,
"Sir, who are You?"

At that,
Sham's life-changing face
gives you a wink.
