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, 


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.
