Cosmos - Poem by Jennifer L Granville

It would be wrong to say
That you have given me
Things which no other ever has

Because you give to me things
No other ever possibly could.

Things I have longed for
With such profundity
As to never have never allowed
For or by myself.

The colors of the world are in your eyes
Colors which, alone,
Are humble
And homely.

But together they make
The magic of a world,
The myriad of which
Is a miracle of the most beautiful

The cosmos of home

And you gave me a star in your constellations

You smiled
As with truest mastery
You let my name mark it
You gave it to me.

Just a speck
Of the meanest of colors
As brown as Jen
Found in the heavens
Of your eyes.
