My second best friend

You never wanted to be photographed,
and so there probable isnít any photo of you anywhere,
but your portrait is forever ineffaceable
in both my mind and that of others,
although you have constantly changed your appearance,
while your soul is constantly unchangeable forever
and quite unmistakable for its characteristic,
personality, integrity and unique originality.
You always wanted to stick under cover,
never wishing to appear in public,
as your mission always was to work under the surface
imperceptibly, as you would never receive honours
or accept the slightest recognition or reward
or even gratitude. And thus your work will go unnoticed,
you will just walk by and be quite satisfied
with the results that you are certain of
and will remain considerable for a permanent duration,
no one ever understanding what you did
but being pleased and grateful for the consequences
without ever understanding how they could occur,
since they could never recognize their source and origin.
Thus you will achieve your aim in life
accomplishing a great work under cover,
the results and consequences being all your satisfaction.
