You are

In your presence
How to place you into mere words?
These feelings can only be constrained
When described

You are beauty
Through and through
Inside and out
In every action

You are worthy
Of so much more than
This life
Can give

You are loyal
And fierce and
Far more brave
Than your fear would have you believe

You are my friend
From here
To our graves

You are my sister
Far closer than blood
Could bind us

You are the smile
In my darkness

You are the hand that
Reaches out
When I don’t want to be reached

The stars pale next to
Their reflection in your eyes
The sun hides from the
Light you bring

And my heart, once dead,
And is at ease
In your presence
