My Prize

by Terry O'Neal

light shines upon you
is your name
you give me hope
to do the same
to be a face
with a name
in this
boundless place

and intelligence
are just a few of many
of your endless qualities

your inner beauty emanates
enhancing the outside
from top to bottom
you prance
like a feather
glowing like neon light
in what once was
a dark crowded room
your presence made it bright
dancing like a firefly
late in the night

the knowledge from your tongue
brings excitement to my ears
even though
I fail to comprehend
every word

I praise you
falling to me knees
at the very sight of you
I roll out the red cazpet

and I bow
what a noble prize
a dream come true

I wish one day
to become
as great a person

to be respected by all
to touch many souls
to grow old
and be known as
