For the one who was gone too soon.
May It Be
There are no words to say.
Only eyes that aren’t dry.
There are no smiles to be given today,
Only the sighs that say good-bye.
We were strangers. You were friends.
And yet this pain is all too real.
Where we thought life begins- yours ends
What else are we supposed to feel?
Some may say I have no right to grieve.
And I sometimes think they’re right.
But what wouldn’t all of us be prepared to give
For a little sleep this night?
I don’t question. I’m not asking why.
That’s why I was never that much around.
But now if to see you, we must look at the sky-
Do you not remember the ones you left on the ground?
May it be that the darkness fall
At the end of every day,
Is just you reminding us all
To continue along our way.
May it be that what you left behind
Is something that we’ll grow
May it be that what’s inside
Is worth it- even though you’ll never know.
May it be that your memory
Is something that will never dim,
May it be – even though you’ll never see
Our resolves grow stronger, not thin.
And finally- may it be
That those you left behind today
Will live as you wished- hopeful and free
A light that will never fade away.
