-Tears of Fears-Mad World

The battle began
Only 13 years ago
Though your time
Was not done,

You fought on,
Continued the trials
That made you weak,
But in the end
You stayed strong,

Still the cancer spread,
No matter what we did
There was no stopping it
Then you said
That when you left
We would be okay,

That we would meet again someday,
If I could say one last thing,
Thank you would be the words,
For all the years
That you fought for us,
All the things you’ve taught us,
And a piece of you

Lives on in all the memories,
For now we say a bitter good-bye
That has been long awaited
But I know this isn’t the end,
Today I hope you know
Where out hearts lie,
And that your legend
Will never die
