As laughter fills the void around us
Friends for many years
Our young lives contemplating the future
What does it hold, what lies ahead.
An adventure is sure to be told.
What’s the matter, your voice sounds strained
It’s nothing serious, there is nothing to blame
In the blink of an eye
The whole world will change, in one distinctive moment
Our lives would never be the same.
The laughter has subsided, with the impending news
It’s not what you want to hear, it’s not what you choose.
The news is so shocking, tears start to flow
My minds first thought, is please you cannot go.
Your children so young, how can they understand
The short time they have, to hold daddy’s hand
You see it as a chance to make things right
And through all of this you. fight ,fight, fight.
The time has come, the battle has been lost
It’s time to go home, your bravery was robust
Goodbye my dear friend, this isn’t the end
Another time ,another place
We all shall transcend.
