Theres a prayer recited every night by my favorite person
It is short in words but long in love
It is written on a balloon
It floats to the stars and beyond where it is read
and cherished with Heavenly wings.
It is written by a lover
It is spoken by a fiery beautiful soul
It is mixed with all her wisdom and her beautiful kindness
It is not just a balloon
It is not just a prayer
It is everything
So long ago, I disappeared from her life
but never from her side have I left
I wish she knew
Maybe she does
At nights by the fire, I touch her face
and for a moment, I can see in her eyes
She gave me that look the first night we met.
We shared a secret, a laugh, a smile
that can only be shared with your soulmate
once in a lifetime.
She stood on my grave tonight
and smiled as the balloon floated past the white of the moon
and past the stars and distant city lights.
Oh I say for now, I bid thee adieu
My love. My life.
Thank you, thank you for the balloon tonight.
