Let’s take a trip down memory lane,

Were thought of you will always stay.

It’s place where I can go alone,

To feel the love that you have shown.

You raised a boy into a man,

Always there to lend a hand.

We’ll be together one day soon,

From now till then I’ll think of you.


Hearts filled with sorrow in the sky,

I always stare, I ask God why he took you and his answer never there.

Emptyness takes over and teary eyes I stay,

I still hear your voice saying it’s gonna be “ok”

God took you unexpectedly and I didn’t get to say goodbye,

I wish things were different, and could look you in the eye.

Broken heart I suffer till the day I die,

I’ll see you once again when god says,

“It’s that time”
