I didnt think I could go on, but you told me I can,
You said my will was stronger than more than one man.
I thought it was the end, but you said it just started,
You said even in death we are not parted.
I believed Id never finish, but you said I could,
You said youd always let me know where you stood.
This is for you, who is so special to me,
You opened my eyes so I can further see.
I remember how you were always there,
I remember how much you seemed to care.
I remember the times I was your greatest concern,
I remember how you always gave me a fair turn.
I remember you asked what your death would mean to me,
You said it would not be much more than a fee.
You said youd be gone and that would be all,
If that were so then that will be where I fall.
Because I know I would never let go,
And all of this comes to show:
You were always there to give me advice,
The knowledge of love, hate, life, and vice.
When you said to be cremated I thought crucified,
At that moment I thought I could have died.
And as you will lay on the mortuary grounds,
The flames licking your body with cracking sounds,
They breathe into you the ashes of life,
A life within heaven, far from strife.
And I would always be missing you,
And remembering the things you were always able to do.
And from the future and my memories,
I remember one thing clearer than the seven seas:
I know, like you, sometimes I thought words of hate, and still,
When I said it was a life that will never be: you said it will.
