-To my dear friend for her wedding day.
When I met you, I didn’t know the sun wasn’t shining;
Dark clouds had sucked me into their foggy grasp.
When you came into the room, it was like daybreak:
A clear blue morning after the night’s raging storm.
When you spoke, my sad amusings slumbered
And a smile broke open with your one word summoning: “Guurl.”
So, whenever your sunlight seems to dim,
it will always shine to me.
Because the depth of your radiance
Is a flame I will always see.
And if you ever need a moonlight wanderer,
I will be a word away, when you call out to me.
