Lantern Love

I saw a version of you
Youthful, glowing with life and vigor
And this vision taught me how to see that light
Still shining inside you
But it was not you
I simply wanted it to be
And the longer I watched
The more I wished
It was truly you
And not one who reminds me
Now I think of you
And miss you
And wonder after you
How your life has continued since we diverged
Whether you still glow
Or if anyone else can completely appreciate
All that you are
If anyone else can breathe your flame to brilliance
The way I can
