My sun
You are my Earth
You are like outer space; you are out of this world
A smile as bright as the moon
And eyes as bright as the sun
You carry an amazing strength
And there is so much to discover
You have a galaxy of knowledge
You lift me off my feet
When I carry you I float away; no gravity
Before you
Everything I was doing was a black hole
Everything I was doing was sucking the life out of me
Before you
Asteroids continuously crashed down on my Earth
Leaving everything I worked for close to extinction
But
You are something I never thought would happen
Like when man landed on the moon
As crazy as it seems, shooting stars exist
I wished upon one and you came true
You have a galaxy of knowledge
And you lift me off my feet
When I carry you I float away; no gravity
My Sun
You are my Mars
You gave me a sense of life when I thought there was none
