You

If there were a way to describe you,
It would not be with simple words.
For no simple word can ever match the beauty of your laughter.

If there were a way to describe you,
Not one simple phrase could do it.
For there is not one simple phrase that is as amazing as you.

If there were a way to describe you,
No paint nor ink could capture your soul.
For yours is a soul of light and air, never to be sustained here.

If there were a way to describe you,
No poem nor novel nor epic would suffice.
For all that is you is beyond simple description or prose.

If there were a way to describe you,
It would simply be this.

You are light where there is darkness.
You are laughter where there are tears.
You are brightness where shadows lurk.
You are safety in the face of danger.
You are strength when I am weak.
You are together when I am alone.

If there were a way to describe you,
I would not use words,
Nor would a thousand candles be light unto you.

Describing you is unataining, unsustaining, unremaining.
Describing you is as flawed as all creation,
There is no summation that is clear in saying who you are.

You are simply you. Undescribable.
