fixed tense problem

the moon made her a halo

moonlight 
streamed
through the open
window,

casting a
silver glow
upon the 
liquid
keys
of the piano

the 
b l a c k
and 
w h i t e
so
stark
in fluorescent
lighting,
were now
softened
by the night

a breeze blew 
into the room,

magnolia petals and
green leaves
riding the wind
as if returning
home
from a 
long journey

and her?
the still figure
silhouetted
against
the stars?

the child
slept
there upon the 
windowsill
leaning against
the wall

as if 
keeping a quiet
vigilance
that even in rest
she couldn't bear to
break

and the full moon
watched her,
and decided to make her
a crown

a halo of silver
entwined in her hair
as if to remind any who
saw
the still form

that serenity
should
never
be taken
for granted
