your presence

icarus could have flown if he had just tried
the wolf would have been caught if the boy hadn't cried
and here is what i would say to you if i wasn't so shy-

your presence fills the world with light
like a vivid sunrise after a year of nights
like a reeling camel finding an oasis in sight

you are a skyline muddled with cell phone towers
and perching sea gulls and thick electrical wires

you are the sea when the moon stares at her face;
you are the reflection of beauty and the reason why ants race-

you are the sweetest honey and a trail of white sugar;
your presence makes this empty world fuller.
