When the clock hits 12 am tonight
We would sing our elegies for you
For the love we shared for thirty days
For the things we felt but couldn’t say
We would hug the memories like a long lost lover
Revel in thoughts of what could have been
We would count the blessings you brought us
And wait another 360 days to hug you.
