A Portrait In Words

Below is a poem I wrote for my girlfriend, Toni, shortly after we met nearly two years ago. The beauty of poetry is the ability to convey so much with so few words and though the picture I’m trying to convey would warrant a thousand words, I think the few words expressed here in this piece do justice.


The sun rises
Just to greet your smile
And the stars
In the night sky
Want to know
How you make your eyes sparkle;

I’m wanting to know
How I came to deserve
Such beauty.
