I’ve been looking at your light
And I’ve been seeing through your eyes
I am surrounded by your love
Holds me like a ransom for the life we barely missed
Pours o’er the transom like heaven’s little kiss.

And at the end of all our time
I pour another glass of wine
So we might celebrate his life
That’s given of the richest love we’d ever hope to give
That took away a life maybe were we meant to live?

Oh our Bohn, oh our Bohn, oh our Bohn.

I am so grateful for your love
For the life we made through love
I miss him every single day
Called away by some accident of fate
I’m certain it was gentle as his life just slipped away
Something wells inside me now with every life we take.

Just a little song for Bohn
A song for little Bohn
For our loved little Bohn.
