happi(n)ess is your light in the shadows of my mind

if i could
pull down the sky
to grab thirty stars
off the ebony blanket of night
to drape across your body
they would demurely dim
faced with the comparison
to the complex beauty
you exude effortlessly.

if i could
write the words
that would prove to you
exactly how deeply ingrained
into my pulse
you have become
i could make it clear
that it doesn’t require a birthday
to celebrate you on everyday.

i have no riches nor fame
all i can offer is my heart
battered and beaten as it is
the promise that this
boundless love is entirely
made for you alone
that every line of passion
every breath of rapture
is ignited with your flame.

happiness is a reflection
of your light
in the shadows of my mind.
