"Life, he realized, was much like a song. In the beginning there is mystery, in the end there is confirmation, but it's in the middle where all the emotion resides to make the whole thing worthwhile." - Nicholas Sparks (The Last Song)


If you are the moon, I am a star
Illuminated by your light
If it weren't for you,
I would not shine so bright


If you are a raincloud, I am the rain
Just like your tears I fall,
Fall for you, just for you,
Raindrops big, and raindrops small


If you are a tree, I am the leaves
Growing with help from you,
Changing not only by color,
But changing by spirit too.


If you are a lighthouse, I am a ship,
Gaining directions from you,
I'll follow your light until I am home,
Which has always been next to you.

I was inspired to write this piece by my best friend of three years, who lives 800 miles away.

I love this! It's so sweet. Very creative metaphors. I'd love your opinion on some of my stuff if you get the chance! :)
