Smile In Your Eyes

If I had the power at my command,
I would carve you a snowflake in the palm of my hand.
I would craft you a bed out of warm desert sands.
But there is no way to show my devotion
Unless I weave you a dress from the tides of the ocean.

And by making these things my love would take form,
And I would give you a diamond from the ice of a storm.
And if I could forge you a mountain, raise it up from the ground,
Just by raising my arm, without making a sound.
Then from that day, would brush upon your cheeks:
A white-gold earring, from its snow-capped peaks.

But even if I made these of land and sea,
You would be just as beautiful without me.
Because when I look up at the night sky,
Not a star holds a candle to the glint in your eye.
And when I look at the sunrise, and the night is exiled,
There is no such beauty as the last time you smiled.

    well i cant imagine why it wouldn't win.
    every poem of yours, its just magic.
    But even if I made these of land and sea,
    You would be just as beautiful without me.
    you twist the words very well on your whim.
    wish i had talent like that.
    well wishing cant get me anywhere now, can it?
    by the way, are all your poems written for this particular someone special?
    then the muse must be Aphrodite for you....
    :)
