Rest in Peace


I never want to relive that night again

I’ll think about it every now and then

It was call after call, step by step

And then you took your last breathe

I was almost by your side

But with the distance I’m forced to abide

I would have held your hand

And thanked you for being so grand

I would have thanked you for everything

But the pain, it stings

You lived a good long prosperous life

With your family and loving wife

Now it’s your time and although I’m sad

I’m glad for the memories we had

I’m glad for the lessons you have taught me

And for being the patriarch of our family tree

I hope you’re at peace, no more pain

I’ll see you one day on heavens lane.
