She Who Transcends the Stars
The sunshine framed her like a pair of wings
The moonlight her halo; her crown.
The sun itself envied her
For her smile was so far brighter
Her eyes of such warmth
That the sun was eclipsed
By her radiance
And the moon graced her every night
In a soft, faded glow
Just to catch a glimpse of her
And to listen to her breathe.
The ocean rushed onto the sand
Sweeping over her feet
Just to greet her:
The glowing girl
For everything that made her her,
Even the ugliest and harshest slices,
Were everything that made her lovely.
Even broken glass catches moonbeams
And beautiful still is it not?
Even at her darkest
She could outshine any star
And what could compare to she
Whom stars are dimmed in the existence of her smile?
