There was something that I wanted to say,

On the very last day,

Of the year when you and I became one.

That you’ve left a mark,

Which became a spark,

And lit a flame where there was none before.

And from this light,

I survived the night,

To live and love you more.

But as the days grow on,

As the night became dawn,

I could feel you slipping away.

So I just wanted to say,

That I wish you would stay,

And not go away.

Today.

You've given this enough romance to convince a loved one of your affection. Nicely done.
