YOU WERE A SONG

You brought a smile to every friend,
You brought melodies and chords that will never seem to end,
With every day, you loved to laugh,
And missing you still breaks so many hearts in half.
Never hearing your voice again just seems so wrong,
But you'd be the first to tell us "Carry on."
You were a song.

You ventured life, went every place,
You could see the soul behind the eyes of strangers you'd embrace.
The path was long, yet with each turn,
You appreciated all there was to learn.
Never caressing your hair again just seems so wrong,
But you'd be the first to tell us "Carry on."
You were a song.

What was it like to be as constant as the morning star so bright,
Never lost in the darkness that you sang about with Joni Mitchell in the night?

Now looking back, this was a test,
To see if we could realize how much we've been blessed,
So fare thee well, but it's not goodbye,
You'll still be here forever in the twinkle of an eye,
Never seeing your face in person just so wrong,
But you'd just laugh and tell us all to carry on.
You were a song.
You were a song.
Goodbye, my friend.
We'll carry on.
You were a song.
