we set off 4 lanterns for you
4 letters like your name,
We lit them together,
All feeling the same,
4 like your day of birth,
2 days after you left this earth.
We watched them float into the sky,
As we comforted eachother
and asked ourselves why.
The tears came streaming,
We shared a cry,
Witnessing them carried away so high,
Forming different patterns, divine.
A shooting star flew in front of our eyes,
A gift from you from the after life.
