We burn brightest when we’re together.
Our sparks erupt like joyous laughter,
When we take flight and light the dark,
Shining memories in our arc.
As distance grows, our fires fade,
Each of us goes our separate ways.
We drift along into the night,
Remembered only upon closed eyes.
We reached for stars, our destinies tethered,
We burned our brightest when we were together.
