Where did the sparkles go, the ones
that came with a smile and wink?
That lifted me up, spun me round,
made me love you in a blink.
Where did the life force go,
from once such glittering eyes?
Do stars take back energy?
Don’t tell me that it dies.
Perhaps the faires took the light
to give their wands true magic,
do the embers lie in my heart?
– thinking other would be tragic.
It hurts to see you go,
to know your memories fade,
but I will keep holding on
to all the love you gave.
