Move your brush and paint boldly.
Create my likeness on this canvas.
Let the world see me as I see myself.
Make this silver hair shine, my face contemplative, the wrinkles and fine lines an honorable embellishment.
Fashion my eyes kind, as inviting portals into my soul.
Allow talented hands to recreate the vastness of my life;
triumphs and challenges, laughter and tears, delights and horrors.
Allow the light to shine on the grand amalgam of all my days.
