I was looking at this city through your hazel eyes that night.
To you, our surrounding was such a sight.
You absorbed everything with all your might.
You said being here felt right.
“You have no idea,”
over and over you told me.
“This place is so lovely.
There’s nowhere else I’d rather be.”
Well, I have to agree.
Not only you admire and appreciate its hidden and often forgotten beauty,
your smile also lights up this city.
I am thankful that I got to look at this city through your hazel eyes that night.
To you, it felt like coming home to your true love’s embrace.
For me, it was giving a dying love another fighting chance.
