…and yet the sun still shines,
though not an brightly as your smile.
It rises every morning disheartened,

It knows that as long as you live,
it can never be the most beautiful thing in the universe.
Even in admitting this though,
it is denying the obvious truth.
Your smile,
your beauty,
your radiance
will outlive it a thousand times over.

You and I will live out eternity together,
just the two of us,
for time unending.
As long as I have eyes to see you,
breath to call your name,
words to adorn you,
you will be the center of my Universe.

…and yet the sun still shines.
