As the sun sets into the mountains,
In the western Colorado skies,

I search for you.

You are,
Somewhere,
Out there.

As the stars begin their celestial flight,
And Jupiter begins to rise in the cool October night,

I search for you.

You are,
Somewhere,
Out there.

And I am just but a lone earth bound shadow in the night.

Galaxies apart were you and I.

You left this world at 26 with no good-bye.

I will never understand,
Why you chose to die.

I search for you.

You are,
Somewhere,
Out there.

And I am just but a lone earth bound shadow in the night.

Wishing on every falling star,
And the meteor showers raining down,

I question.

Have you seen her?
Have you seen her?

And then my Love,
My Love,
You who were lost to me,
In this universe,
Are then found.

Time stands still.
And the earth stops spinning.

For just a moment,
We are two shadows,
Dancing in the night.

You, my beloved daughter,
And I.

I watch the moon beams flicker in your eyes.
They rise up and fill my heart with light.

Earth bound,
Radiant,
You strived to be.

As God and Venus watch over us,
I hold you close,
Kiss you,
Then set you free.

Burning big and bright,
Bursting forth,
My Comet,
My Daughter,
My Joy,
My Everlasting Delight.

And in the early morning light,
I am forever after changed.
I am no longer just but a lone earth bound shadow in the night.

My search for you is over.

I’m letting go,
And giving up this fight.
I’ve finally been able to say good-bye.

Like a Shadow,
Like a Comet,
A Spirit never really dies.

It only changes form,
And soon again will rise.

I am forever after changed.
Now knowing,
You will always be,
Somewhere,
Out there,
Always dancing with me.

And you my Love,
My Love,
You SHINE, SHINE, SHINE!
