My Love, You Are
by Ashley Huston

The breath of angels dances through the night sky
A single petal stands valiant in the dark:
My love, you are the single petal
The sly fox stares up into bleakness
Blinded by a single spark of light's radiance:
My love, you are that spark
A tear rolls down a widow's face
In memory of lovers lost
My love, you are that tear
Oh, petal who is my greatest joy
Oh, spark that is my heart's beacon through despair
Oh, tear that is an ocean of sorrow
My love is lost, yet remains in my heart
