Spring was always my favorite season
The warm sunshine on my face
after so many dark and cold days
The vibrant greens, pinks, and yellows
instead of that stark, blank white.
But then I met you in August
And now I have summer nights walking the boardwalk
Kisses in the sunsets
Feeling light with the music playing
on the radio and the windows rolled down
Summer is now my favorite season
And it’s all because I met you.
I know you’re hurting now, love.
You’ve been the sole warrior
Fighting against an army of thousands.
We’re here beside you
And we will carry you
When it is time.
You’ve given it your all
Just let us know, darling
When you’re ready to rest your head.
You are the sunshine on my face
the day after another April shower.
You are the lighthouse
guiding me home in the roughest waters.
You are the gorgeous mountain ridge
that takes my breathe away every sunset.
You are the galaxy swirling in the midnight sky
that floods my heart with childlike wonder.
I was searching blindly until you shed your light on me.
You are every minute that makes this life worth living.
You are my happiness, my comfort, my heart.
I know it’s over but you never really gave me an ending.
You just faded away like the Sun over the horizon.
It’s much darker now but I can still see the Moon,
like my love for you
and it stays there all through the night.
But all I can think about is how
the Sun and the Moon are light years apart
and yet, they are still closer than
