I know how much it hurts,
And that every day you cry.
I know that sleep brings peace,
But how tears return with the morning sky.
I know that grief surrounds you,
And suffocates your dreams.
How life’s gone on without you…
You were left behind, or so it seems.
But one day the sun will shine again,
And a smile will cross your face;
Memories will bring you back,
To a special time and place…
Where you can speak their name again
Without falling down in tears.
A time to reflect on the life they had
Without remembering your fears…
Of living life without them:
A path you feel you walk alone.
Except they’re always there beside you,
And they’ll be there, to take you home.
Our lives here are but a flash in time
So finish out your days,
In honour of their memory
For them, live it big in many ways.
They want you to be happy
They want your chalice full
Until that time when they come to you
To take that final walk home.
