"And Then There Was You"
Ensnared by the darkness of un-remembrance
Lost in the shadows of loneliness
Alone and forsaken
Sad and forgotten
Captured by the evil of need
A want for something more
A desire for someone to love.
And then there was you.
You of the spun-gold, Rapunzel hair
You of the sparkling, love-filled blue eyes
You of the smile that captures hearts
You that captured mine in just one touch
The moment I saw you, I knew you were the one.
We hid behind our words
Stuck out our tongues
Battled over trivialities
Our feelings always underneath.
But they became unshed when our identities were revealed
Sailor Moon, Warrior for Justice
Princess Serenity, Reincarnation of the Moon Princess
But underneath it all, always and forever, clumsy and ditzy Usagi
The girl who accepted everyone
Regardless of backgrounds
Regardless of assumptions of possible enemy status
The girl who held the world in the palm of her hand
Nourished it and made it better
Felt its pain and its joys
Cried at violence
Radiated at care and love
Always and forever that sweet Usagi.
And so the romance began
My heart sighed in content
The family I never had
Together through all pain and hardship
Strong through death and sorrow
You taught me the joy of life
And we lived, and we loved
And together that love created another life.
And then there was you.
You of the cotton-candy pink hair so like your mother's
You of the ruby red eyes thatalways shone with curiosity of the world and of love
So like your mother
The perfect child
A Small Lady
Seed of a union of eternal love.
But your brain inside was mine
Quick and sharp
Smart and intellectual
Apple of my eye
Chip off the old block.
I promised you better than what I had, and you got it
A normal, loving childhood
Two parents who loved you very much
Knowing who you were
Little Princess of Crystal Tokyo
Daughter of Neo-Queen Serenity and King Endymion
Senshi of the Future Moon
Descendant of the Silver Crystal Moon Rulers.
These things I never had
Just the black of loneliness
But then came you and my Usako and my world lit up
I saw life and the pure joy of it
Things I never knew
But now know.
All because I met you.
