You were young and you were free,
You shone with passion and serenity,
You were the warm cloth that eased my pain
Existing on this earth – day in, day end.
You were that ignorant, insufferable soul
That made me bleed and made me whole.
And when you lay still in my arms that starless night
I caught your whisper and released it into the sky
I turned you into mighty bright stars; up, very high.
‘Orion’ you shall be called from now on, my love
You burnt my soul and so the sky you will now burn.
