namesake

ocean waves crash into shorelines,
and your subtle smile so falls as timely,
gracing the eyes of he who, so finely,
wanted you by him and through his lines.

he sets you high, he’ll say, but your height is proven,
by the choices you’ve made; your beauty shines,
before and after, and long through these signs—
however it is you may believe he’s unproven.
