You shook my soul as Halley struck the sky,
You said it was the last time for your life
The pale little trail wouldn't know you're missing the next time it arrives

I held your hand maybe a little too tight
See I was young then and I thought a wish could rewrite
The patterns of life, set the grim parts glowing
We'll all stay frozen in time

But we'll be back one day, with you a little more grey
I'll leave one arm spare for my own 'little bear'
And we'll gaze a while until the lights leave

You said it's been there for millions of years
I was already small but I felt myself shrink
The rain chose to pour and we went in slowly
You waved goodbye
