Tears glitter as crystal in the light, falling down onto that soft
They carry pieces of my heart, love that I return to you
Memories of laughs, smiles and joy, gifts that you gave to me
Never to be forgotten, their strength shall help me endure
Though bittersweet now, the flame shall burn true
Cutting through the darkness, a glow only my heart can see.
These earthly bodies may be separated, but they are only an outer
Like golden and silvery threads, our lifeforce within is too much
The fabric it weaves, shining and as strong as steel
Will serve to protect me as I walk through this hell
A final gift only your love could have designed.
You bestowed upon me with your characteristic zeal.
Our separation is not final, nor is it forever
Even though two brave hearts stopped beating today
So my beloved friends, I shall not say "Goodbye"
These bonds of love, death cannot sever
Instead "Till we meet again," for though I wish you could stay
Right now it's time for your souls to fly!!
