    It's time to bring you back again, Emmy
    Things are becoming surreal,
    But as I recreate you, envision your life,
    I can't help but to mourn for you.
    You were there in silent monument,
    As my thoughts dared to creep into a mystical respect,
    Oh, I was brave, no doubt in that,
    Bravery forced only by the presence of innocent companions,
    We came in search of the awe-inspiring northern lights,
    They left with just satisfaction,
    But I left with a new chaotic understanding,
    For as their focus reached the sky,
    I hadn't the nerve to shift my gaze heavenward,
    Instead it fell upon your memory,
    -A memory before my physical existence.
    I fell in love with your idea that night Emmy.
    I penned the justification in my suicide,
    Placed it securely and went out to seek you again,
    But I couldn't face you Emmy,
    I had to avoid and retreat,
    But my failed venture to seek you wasn't the least in vain.
    I was welcomed with concern and honest love,
    And the ere hidden debate of selfishness sat on the table,
    A desparate testimonial to their new understanding,
    I talked and talked but I didn't once mention you,
    Though you were sitting on top of my soul,
    And they listened and I became worth something, Emmy.
    Now I am frightened again to lose my self
    But as long as you're within, I know I won't forget,
    It may have been a century past your deliverance,
    But you are still very much alive.
