When time forgot the hours
and the stars reached down
to touch the heart of Love,
she became the Light Keeper.
She held the Moon in her fingers
and felt the pulse of its beams.
Dangled the stars above the Earth,
told time to stand still
while she called to the One
Who knew her very soul.
The Light Keeper ran her hands
through the radiant sparkles
and turned her ear to the Heavens.
Listened to the sound of its voice,
the melody of its planets. She
tossed each star back into its place,
and let each ray of the Moon flutter
through an endless night to cross over
the sleeping form of a Love kept
in the clasp of her time-tuned dreams.
