i met a lady, once, a lady in the sky,
she was draped with clouds; pearly pinks and whites
and her smile, her smile, her smile was the sun.
she showed me the moon, how the moon loves to dance,
and she brought me to a pool and showed me the rain
before it even dreamed of falling.
she spoke in poetry, she spoke to me, and
she told me of the most magical things -
the breeze tossing the fronds of the willow tree,
frost collecting on the lilac buds, the undersides of leaves,
dewdrops dancing along the gossamer strands of a spider's web.
she smiled, she smiled, she smiled down at me,
and like air flowing through my lungs,
i felt sure that i was where i was meant to be.
we tiptoed, we leapt, we danced among the clouds,
she wrapped us in mist and the sunrise painted our cheeks.
her hair was dark, decorated with lilies, and her eyes were twinkling,
as bright as the moon. we traced the constellations, we
collected the stars in our skirts.
she laughed, she laughed, she laughed with a bubbling, musical laugh,
that showed more than her beauty -
her hands were gentle and her eyes were smiling, and
the love in her flowed like a stream.
i met a lady, i met a lady, i met divinity,
and she took my hand and led me
to where heaven began.
For you, Wisp :)
I know I've said it a few times now, but you are so special. I see you as an older sister, someone to look up to. Your writing is so beautiful, and you are so inspiring to me. Thank you, Wisp, for all of the encouragement you've given me, for the kind words and just always being there for me :) it means more than you know. And I know I'm not alone when I say it wouldn't be the same without you, here. You've helped me grow so much. So thank you!
