Extending your hand,
when I was alone,
you held me so tight,
then swallowed me whole.

I laid in your heart,
I made it my home,
I lit a bright candle,
then watched as it glowed.

You traveled through space,
navigating time.
Your life was my movie,
I laughed at your crimes.

I tugged at your heart,
whispered all you felt,
igniting your sparks,
the candle then melts.

Lived your adventure,
I peeked through your eyes.
Till one sparkling day,
I tugged at your side.

Exposing deep thoughts,
we laughed till we cried.
We clutched to each other
made life our fun ride.

Apart we dissolve,
entwined we are solid.
Your chest my firm pillow
provides my tears solace.

Form a fairyland
where we can fly free,
wherever we go,

always glow with me.
