At night, he is my shining star. I look up
at him while he clears my path; I close my eyes and wish upon him, �Star light,
Star bright, I wish I may, I wish I might have you embrace me tonight.� When my
eyes open, he is in front of me, gracing my skin with his touch.
In daylight, he is my ray of sunshine. As the sun rises at dawn, I watch him
brighten my path. The rays are so colorful, so vibrant. As the day continues to
get brighter with yellow rays of joy, I stand still; close my eyes; tilt my head
back; and bask in his sunlight. His ray of sunshine radiates through me, so
gentle and warm. I open my eyes and see his arms are draped around me, for he is
standing behind me, embracing me.
In spring, he is my budding tulip. Surrounding me with such vivacious, yet
pastel, colors. I pass through a pedaling garden of tulips. I kneel down to
capture the aroma of the charming flowers. The fragrance of the petals is of
him. I close my eyes and dream of him. I awake as I feel the stem of a tulip
delicately being feathered through my earlobe. I rise, and see only him. He is
my garden of paradise.
In a summer rainstorm, he is a soft drop of rain. I follow a rainbow as his
celestial drops of rain caress me. I end up coming upon him at the end of the
glistening colors. There he stands, my everlasting pot of gold.
In autumn, he is my blissful leaves. All different colors while his personality
penetrates through them. As they begin to fall, his leaves begin building a
castle of beauty for me. I close my eyes and lie upon them. They embrace me as
if he is tenderly holding me. My eyes open and it is truly him enveloping me
with his touch.
During a winter snowstorm, he is my glittering shower of snowflakes. So crystal
white and soft. I close my eyes while his supple snowflake lands upon my
forehead. A cool, wet breeze passes through me, as if he is kissing me lovingly.
My eyes open, forever entranced within his, as he stands before me.
