Can you see the fireflies...?

by Stephanie Kent

Holding your hand,
I watch the sun surrender to the night
In a burst of flame and star-flowers.
Darkness marches in its Triumph,
But I know the fiery day clutches a rebellion everlasting,
For it is still burning in your beautiful eyes...

You've filled my eyes with fireflies...
