Seems just yesterday we were getting things ready for your prom
Things were so very different and unknown back then.
Many dreams, hopes, and wishes that never seemed to end.
I remember how nervous you were being all “dolled up”,
Yet,to me you were such a true beauty, despite the makeup.
I wish I had collected every thought and word, all those years ago.
I always wanted to be there for all your “firsts”,
All the times when your spirit seemed about to bust.
Those times when everything I did seemed to be just enough.
You were the first, for me.
So beautiful and tiny,
So meek and yet so strong.
Oh, how I long to be there once again,
When there was nothing better than holding your small hand.
How could that path turn to such a different one?
I feel we lost something along the way,
Something that either was burnt or got tattered
Those feelings we may never have again.
I long for the day when the sun shines our way again
When all that will matter is us and our love.
Here’s to and through the journey, of us.
