Cygnus (or "The Swan") is a constellation.  It is also called, "The Northern Cross."

Swan of the north
Wings spread in flight
Guide our ship forth
Through the darkness of the night.

Guide our hearts home
From places afar
We'll never be alone
As long still shines your brightest star.

Shine Deneb bright
Shine like her eyes
For her face is the light
For which my heart cries.

 That which gives light must endure burning
--Victor Frankl

Sven, this is really beautiful and flowed nicely.

This woman in your poetry
Seems like you never quite get to her
It's driving me crazy!
This is beautiful

Sven -

This shines as bright as the
magnitude of Deneb.
A glowing piece.
She walks through the
constellation of your heart.
