I Held the Sun

March 17, 2010
I held the sun
between my fingers.

Smaller than I expected
and cooler too.

Bringer of our light,
courier of days

rays that herald the future
settings that paint the twilight

But compared to me -
my love

how small it was.
Like a pebble.

But compared to you -
your eyes

how dull it was
like a stone.

You and I
we make something greater

greater than the sun.
greater than the twilight

and the dawn that wakes us...
we awaken love.

This is very beautiful. 

My only critique is the use of the word 'twilight' simply because it evokes unwanted thoughts of the series called--hold it, you might have heard of it--Twilight.

Other than that, this is a simple, sweet poem.
