tonight i witnessed your grace

tonight i witnessed your grace;
the gentle smile on your face; pureness
in heart and soul; an intoxicating embrace;

red dress and white lace;

the warmth and glint in your clear blue eyes
and your genuine smile; the expanse of your love--

the way you caressed the ones you adore;
the loveliness of your voice--
its reassuring tone;

your immeasurable patience; your tolerance;
the spontaneity you possess and your youthfulness;
the lightness of your step;

your exuberance for being alive;
my dear, you were beyond luminous--
you emitted crystalline light;

you were sun, moon
and every star tonight.
