On Top of the World

She is an angel floating above Earth
She happens to be having a manic mood swing
I can see a twinkle in her eyes
Her teeth are pearly white and her smile wide
She knows something I don’t
Even her dark secrets appear wholesome

For every worry a freckle
For every fear a beat of her tambourine
For every morsel lost another gleam in her eyes
For every skipped beat of her heart another bat of her eyelash
For every plunge into the abyss another catchy song —
Another snap of her finger
Another crowd pleaser
