a speck of light

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

On your shoulder is speck of light.
It glows when you are angry,
vibrates when you are happy,
and dims when you cry.

Everywhere you go the light feels
all of your sensations,
reflects your mood,
and announces your demeanor.

Sometimes when you are tired
I see your light burning red,
taking fuel from your dreams,
and then blinking while you sleep.

Sometimes when you are perky
I see your light burning blue,
emboldened by your intentions,
and flashing dark from readiness.

Your light inspires me
to give all the love I have,
laugh with your spirit,
and hold you every moment.

On my shoulder is a speck of light.
It glows when I am angry,
Vibrates when I am happy,
and dims when you are far away.
