Put a face in firelight,
And laugh as the embers float to the stars,
And every concern will fade into the smoke.
It's a top down
Sun in the sky
Kind of day.
I have a pit bull exterior but is that all you see?
Most people who walk by stop, stare, and then flee
But I know I am different, like you want me to be,
For I have a loving and tender heart inside of me.
She starts every morning with light,
Painting the sky with pastel hues,
Spreading excitement for the unknown of a brand new day
She disperses her rays over plants,
Offering a warm welcome,
Stretching out her rays as if to aid them in their growth
She slowly slips behind a dark cloud,
Which makes the world cry,
Longing for her warmth and love to caress it once more
But she reappears once again,
Expelling her fire light across all creation,
Making faces and petals alike smile towards her magic.
For my best friend,
thanks for being a light in my life.
As I looked down, the cobblestone was alive,
Dancing to the music of a live band,
Walking with wandering tourists,
Laughing with children eating ice cream cones
And there I was, watching silently,
Apart from the soul,
Yet beating right along with the heart.
The distant lights across the water attempted to illuminate the shadow waves, swaying in beat with the cool breeze
The stars above shone in the darkness, their brightness unaffected by the misty clouds
The dock was slippery under my feet and damp under my fingertips as they glided along the railing
Our laughter mixed with the frog’s croaks to make music never before heard
And as I looked over, finding her next to me, my heart felt at home.
