Landed on the skin of my eyelids
and taught me how to see with
both eyes closed forever more.
I saw my wife dancing her way
through life with flawless grace.
Hardwired as she was, she never
even paused for a breath. Generous
to a fault, her tears washed away
all my fears about ever being alone
again as she held me close with
the tenderness of a bird and the
strength of titanium steel.
Her kisses were poems meant
to be read with the luminescence
of her voice for all eternity to hear.
She shone like a bright morning star.
