The Sun & The Stars

She brought the stars with her. 

I had never seen them so close. 

Now I when I reach out I can touch them. 

She brought the sun with her. 

 I had never felt it’s warmth. 

 Now it’s rays fill me with light. 

She brought me the gift of presence. 

  The weight of time had never felt so heavy.

Now every minute without her weighs tons. 

I asked

“You brought all these things to me. What am I to give to you?”

She replied  

“I gave you the stars because you gave me the sky.

  I gave you the sun because  you gave me the clouds.”

Not knowing

she was the sky. the clouds. the sun. the stars.
