You will never know how much I miss you, and have over the years.
Pouring this overfull heart out, and shedding too many tears.
The circumstances that separate us, more concrete than ever.
So I build myself a sturdy shelter to shield me from the weather.
One morning, more than anything, I shall never forget.
Battled bouncing orange balls all night,
Scraping out resin hits.
Three sets of master materia, through so many hours of grinding.
Little did we know, overhead, the planets were aligning.
Embarking from the house at dawn’s first light, into the thickest fog.
We journeyed through the forest, and enjoyed the eerie calm.
Dew hung thick in spider’s webs, that carpeted the forest floor.
We would stop here and there and fill our lungs with some more.
As surreal as that morning was, veiled by the looming treetops.
Every time I drift into that memory, my heart stops.
What a very special bond was cultivated betwixt these two unlikely beings.
When I think of it, my big heart bursts, at it’s very seams.
So I step outside, at dawn’s first light, and light a death with tears.
Acquiring a last’un, for the truest you bee moments we shared, over the years.
No matter what has happened or what will happen in the future
The youbeeness in my heart.
