Out of steadfast sorrow
you grin
a gallant grin
brave perfect
a constellation
just born
in velvet sky
you grin
a generous grin
dripping hidden honey
nectar sweet delight
sugars my eyes
candies my open heart

Out of woeful grief
bloody thorns
heavy heartache
for a moment
you abandon anguish
through an opening
you find a way to smile
at our vaulting vocals
full of nonsense rhymes
hopscotch chalked
our fun-size feet
jump leap
spew wild laughter

Out of steadfast sorrow
you grin
a glowing grin
a lighthouse
even though
inevitable storm
may drive us high
higher away
from glimmering shore
