When I Met You

August 12, 2022

-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.
