Remember me on Valentines,
the day our two hearts met.
Souls collided, fate stepped in,
serendipity paid its debt.
Remember me at Halloween,
the night I loved the most.
Throwing your Dracula cape aside,
on bended knee, you proposed.
Keep me in mind on Christmas Eve,
while you watch the fire in the hearth.
Feel my spirit staying close,
Afraid of leaving the Earth.
For I will remember you all those days,
And every one in between.
The hardest part of loving you now,
is knowing I’ll never be seen.
