That April date, 

Who knew it’d be the last

That we were enjoying life

It seems the day went by so fast 

———-

Four o’clock came

And we headed home

Passing our special place 

With waters white as foam 

———-

The day ended and I said goodnight 

You waved goodbye, 

smiled 

and then turned out your light

———-

You never made it clear 

That they were doing this to you 

A young and daring boy 

Is all we ever knew 

———-

In the eyes of those you were unknown to

You had your glory days 

For a moment, your name was known to them 

Now it’s lost in a haze 

———-

But to me, you’re always here

Lingering around

Your memory carried through the wind 

Is forever my favorite sound

———-

In the reality of it all,

you thought it was time to go, 

So now your hands are clasped together

for an infinity or so

———-

Above all thoughts I guess

You thought life wasn’t meant to be

And felt like your soul was in prison 

And death was the only escape to set it free

———-

It’s been sometime now 

And things don’t feel the same 

For your soul is missing from this life 

And I feel like I’m to blame

———-

In Heaven, you’re free from pain 

And surrounded by love

And now you are my angel 

Watching from above.
