I close my eyes and all I see
Is the light within you shine.
That was another life for us,
You never could be mine.

I still hear your voice...your sound...
and I know that I am there.
Soaring with a lightness of being,
While great magic filled the air.

I wonder if you think of me...
Do I still interrupt your dreams?
Could I ever just forget you?
I know that answer, it seems.

Months gone by, you're not here,
I miss you more now than then.
Let me touch you just one more time,
And then never again.

Officials say a 13-year-old Provo boy rescued from the Provo River over the weekend has died.

Primary Children's Medical Center reports the boy died Tuesday morning. The teen was floating the river on an air mattress Saturday when he fell into the water.

Authorities were able to rescue him after about 10 minutes. He was breathing, but not conscious. The boy was transported by ambulance to Utah Valley Regional Hospital and later flown to Primary Children's.


On December 1, 2011 the three Provo City Police Officers that pulled Nathan Daniel Ellison from the Provo River were awarded with the Medal of Valor for risking their lives in this courageous act of heroism. After being pulled from the river Nathan's heart was started again by the Provo City Fire Department's Paramedics. When he arrived at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center he was placed on a ventilator. He was later flown to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City where he was taken off the ventilator three days later. It was at that time that he died. He was surrounded by his family.

On the day of June 4, 2011 when this happened the level of the river was over six feet deep which was caused by the spring runoff.
