I look up just in time
to see the sun shine
through the window

Your hand in your hair
Tight black T-shirt
And a look on your face
That could light up this whole world
My firefly.

Sunlight streams in
and I stare.
Suddenly you are aglow.
Your tanned skin is sunkissed
Your eyes have melted from Chocolate into caramel.
And finally your hair...
Illuminated butterscotch
streaks in the bullion brown

I swear,
I've never favored silver, copper, or gold,
but you make my eyes sparkle with greed
My firefly.

And I want to reach out and touch you, to make sure perfection is real.

I want to kiss you as If I too
were the sun. So I could make
you glow like firelight in the daylight.
My firefly.

The sun is hidden by a cloud, but
in my eyes you are still shining.

Inspired by an amazing moment when the guy I'm crazy about was just glowing like gold in the sunlight and it was one of the most beautiful moments ever :)
