In words, I miss you,
more than you can know.

You were the one
I loved so long ago.

Found something
in the science,

in the snow.

Left me long
time ago.

You were something
of a stranger,

like a dancer
on death row,

wore your heart
on your sleeve.

You wore a heart
and halo.

You’re the one
I miss today,

You are
never gone.

You are
the love

that left me
long ago.
