More than Luck


Courtney, are you made of glass?
You must be; you’re my twin
Picked to be from all the mass
The nearest of all kin

You are Coral surrounded by kelp
The flotsam and jetsam of the sea
We mermen call on you for help
Not foe, but anemone

You’re not conscious of your fragility
You’re strong and good and true
Bearing all with humility
Laughing and smiling in all you do

I’ve watched you hatching from your shell
It didn’t take you long
Soon, soon I’ll hear the music swell
And listen to your chapel song

You gave away your armor
Even your tunic scarlet-sashed
I’m anxious at this tremor
Please don’t let your heart be smashed

If your heart breaks so will mine
For we are conjoined you know
We are the branches, He is divine
To Him, then, we shall go
