And I will etch your name on the sky,
And leave it for all to read
In bold gold of precious ink,
To dazzle heavenly beside the stars,
For every night and thus.
And I will etch your name on every book,
And make you breathe eternally,
Of how brave a human you were,
How unfazed though the onus you carried,
Earned you your roughened hands and wrinkled skin and took your life.
Aye, I will etch your name on stones,
For every wayfarer to stop and pause,
And softly call your name in baffled wonder.
You will live in their memories and your name shall wake their curiosity to know you.
I will etch your name on my heart,
For the love you've given me,
For kindness I never deserved,
For courage you've cloaked me with,
My Light! My Love!
You shall live in me forever.
