Light

I sit and watch you smile. Is that an unearthly light?
You came from darkness. I witness reflected light.

I'm inexplicably drawn towards you
Your sweet presence makes my spirit feel light.

From uplifted branches colored leaves fall.
Dancing around you in glowing sun light!

A shadow falls across you pretty face
You return to darkness, there is no light

Perhaps I imagined you sitting there
A wondrous thought bathed in unearthly light



First attempt at this form.
