Beautiful You

For every ship that sailed away

you forever received two in return

the heavily laden burden of fault

from which you never had to learn.

 

The sparkling light of luck

shone always on your skin

and the bright spark of hope

built bridges from within.

 

Perfectly formed a beautiful being

the mirror blushed at your vision

a sight to behold and to admire

a form unneeding of revision.

 

The sparkling light of luck

shone always on your skin

and the bright spark of hope

built bridges from within.

 

A character others did respect

doing deeds that helped so many

a letter, a demo, a bitter fight

always the right side of the penny.

 

The sparkling light of luck

shone always on your skin

and the bright spark of hope

built bridges from within.

Thanks, Brian. Yes, a rarity for me. Certainly, more challenging but definitely satisfying.

A rare rhyming piece from you Jon. Well done. It's a challenge isn't it?
