Children laughing huddled in a room
Games and Laughs and pranks and schemes, life was good when we had forever at least as it seemed.
Holidays and birthdays and we grew into young women and you into a young man.
With hopes and dreams all your own with laughter that didnt seem to end.
Today i stand before you when the laughter is no more and I try to eulojize the man with honor and pride. I want to go back to that laughter but somehow I think it died.
So instead of the laughter I stand behind a vale of tears, trying to think back upon all those wonderful years.
I can't seem to remember if its the beginning or the end,
Who knows where your life would have taken you, It was just up around that bend. No use in trying to see now, the end for you is near.
I just wanted to tell you, I will always hold you dear.
