The Tears of Dawn

Angel-born smiles slip away
To forever sleep in grace,
Leave names to love forever, but what's in a name,
When farewell is too much to say
Through the tears falling from the face
Of those who will forever cherish the days

Please sleep in peace,
As your dreambound voice will sing the melody
Unfit for tears, not for love, not for me…
Sweeter the dreams, bitter the sorrow
At the dawn when I wake up alone...

All the tears shed at the breaking of the dawn…
Each one for beauty, for the loved ones now gone.
They come to comfort me through the lonesome of the night
Until the day they bring me into the light.

Please sleep in peace,
As your dreambound voice will sing the melody
Unfit for tears, not for love, not for me…
Sweeter the dreams, bitter the sorrow
At the dawn when I wake up alone...

I feel your love o'er the distance of our hearts
Let no mountain stay us apart, let our love carry us together
Once upon a time, you were my world, my friends
Today, ever after, you’re the stars in my sky,
My everything, my angels…

Your words speak to me because they are so ture and sincere. I more than love it. It's so touching when people really use what's inside they're hearts and I can really tell you used what was inside your heart. May your loved ones rest in peace along with mine.

This song I've dedicated to the memory of one of my closer friends, Kenny Baker, who left this world only two weeks before our high school graduation...I will miss him eternally but I hope that through my music, I can hold onto the part of him that still lives on in me and all my friends and those who loved him...

these lyrics are meaningful to me because I have lost to many but still remember their voices and the way they look.
