The Angel

Born of love and joys aplenty
Only to wither without the original smile
A soul is washed from the shores
And the footprints are all left to find

Looking out to the seas
Looking for an answer
For the lack of a person beside
And the growing loneliness inside

The sun sets tonight, setting the sea ablaze
As the tears reach my eyes once more
Wishing you were here to share the moment
So I could tell you how much I miss you
Walking along the sandbars looking for a trace of you
But there is no second pair of footprints beside mine
For you’re far away walking the meadows of heaven
In a place that we have yet to follow you to

Remembering the smiles
Remembering the love
The smiles and laughter
All here in our hearts
The sounds of childhood games
Bonds that could never break
The memories that flourish
In a place not far from home
When we walked together
A time that will go on and on and on

Today, we stand before you
One final farewell bid to you
Before you begin your ascension
And meet the maker
This last line is for you
The comrade, friend and brother
Forever to be remembered
Today is for you

For the dawn that never came
For the life that was lost in the rain
For the brothers left to walk alone
See the sun begin to rise
Your star now shines bright in the sky
Another star to lighten our darkest hour
We watch the newborn angel take to the skies
