It's been so long, yet still I cry
don't know if I can cope,
Just one more day I'm tripping through
bogged down with endless hope.
I don't know why it came your time
sixteen's just way to soon,
So much regret for things unsaid
now spoken to the moon.
I wish that I could say goodbye
but all around you're here,
To say I love you one last time
is written in each tear.
Still days go by and things feel wrong
it's hard to feel I'm whole,
When you were taken from this earth
it cut deep in my soul.
Your sister still she cries at times
I try to soothe her heart,
By telling her you love her too
though that's the saddest part.
Your brother how he honors you
wants just to be the same,
He misses you but everyday
he always speaks your name.
I know we'll meet again up there
where you with God now rest,
It's just that sometimes I can't bear
this sadness in my chest.
I hope that with what life I've left
I'll leave something behind,
That hope will flow from you to me
just like your blue eyes shined.
You'll never be forgotten
I know for now you're far,
It's just so sad that memories
can't take me where you are.
