The Sparkle in Your Eyes



~~~

The light from the stars has traveled

A million years just to twinkle in your eye

To arrive at this very moment

Distant blessing from a night sky

~~~

And in the time that has passed

Since this radiant original birth

It has sped its way unyielding

Just to grace our mother Earth

~~~

And now it falls with subtle kiss

Upon this one, so kind and fair

A unique and loving gift from heaven

For a woman just as rare

~~~

And shine it does, within your eyes

Exquisite diamond of the night

True love found in the reflection

Of a distant, ancient light

~~~

And if your love, you promise me

Before the dawning of the day

I will never let a single tear

Ever wash that starlight away

~~~

Pledge your heart, my sparkling love

And I will kneeling, promise my own

Promise to love you, for as long as it takes

For that light to find its way home

~~~

    hold on to the person
    you refer
    to in this poem

    you will regret you ever met them
