Memoriam

At once you danced towards the light,
With eyes that shone forever bright,
And ran through youth with much gusto,
Proving your speed was not just show.

And then you came to meet with me,
You stole my heart and set it free,
For years we shared a life of dreams,
Content to walk those subtle streams.

But then our paths did take a turn,
I said goodbye, my heart it yearned,
To once again be by your side,
I dreamed of times when we could ride.

But now you've journeyed on your own,
To ride throughout that great unknown,
Your eyes still dance, I feel you near,
Whenever Heavens stars appear.
