Dancing on Starlight

on nights when velvet skies
are dotted with sparkling stars
I think of you dancing across
the galaxy, with tails of moonbeams

the enigmatic smile, the lovely eyes
dreamily looking into their own
memories, or maybe a magical future
or thoughts of handprints in the heart

on dup nights reading your thoughts
sometimes you speak of your love
at times your hopes your dreams your fears
then, I could almost touch you

tears of happiness prickle my eyes
as you profess your love for the one
of sadness and sorrow as you grief
that is the strength of your words

I know you know pain and disappointment
I know you shook hands with fear
You had looked into the abyss
And knew the horror of what might be

a minute of your strength
will be of great length for me
a fraction of your endurance
can be an achievement for me

but through all those, the beauty
of being oneself, a screaming win
against waking nightmares
loving hard, and striding on stronger,

is your triumph.
