If I could put you in a bottle

Seal you in glass

Place you on some far up shelf

In a place unseen

I would

I could never hide your light

Those ethereal colors

So vibrant

So alive

I fear the day that the monsters find you

Crawling on blackened claws

Out from the quiet

Out from the dark

If I could put you in a bottle

Seal you in glass

Place you on some far up shelf

In a place unseen

I would

But, I can’t

I won’t smother your light

Only take your hand

You have been my strength

My northern lights

Let me be yours
