This poem was the 1st Place Winner in our 3rd Annual Poetry Contest.
We were opposites, she and I,
She of the earth and I of the sky.
She ruled day while I ruled night,
She worshiped the ground as I took flight.
But even so we longed to meet
To have our faces lay cheek to cheek,
But we danced to different tunes,
She the sun and I the moon.
Yet, she lit up my dark, I calmed down her day.
Was that the way things had to stay?
Consumed by darkness and forever apart,
I almost destroyed what was left of my heart.
But she of the earth was stronger than I,
She danced to the sun, a fire in her eyes.
Moving the sun with her tale of romance,
The sun shared of its light to give us a chance
So, one by one, they came to appear
Little Suns in the night, so magic and dear.
A sign of true love, or so the tale goes,
That she shared of her sun to lighten my woes;
I laughed in joy at their beautiful glow,
And so the wind sang to her down below.
We dance to the tune, of wind and starlight;
Now bound together, our love shines bright.
