Northern Light

Love is not just how we feel about someone while they are holding our hand. Love is how we keep that person in our hearts when their path is no longer next to ours in the sand.

You were the first person that healed and helped me see,
I had everything I needed to be the man I wanted to be.

As I reach out to hold your hand during my dreams at night,
my memories of you light the shore like northern lights.

I am complete because it was you that showed me how to love,
because I will never stop believing in your beautiful light that comes from above.

As the ocean tide hits the shore revealing things that are new. I will always look up at the night sky because I will never stop loving and missing you.

As this pain grows deeper inside of me, I know you are the only woman I am willing to get down on one knee.
