On a morning--

a day so oppressive and grey--

how could you shine so brightly?


Your form and spirit,

so spritely, profess.

So, how could I not be moved to confess

the wonders of your wan cheek

and slanted brow...

the fragile truths your eyes can't hide...

your fractured smile and how

your placid form begins to tremble

when you just cannot speak?


How could you shine so brightly on a day

so grey

and bleak...?
