"I will work harder" (animal farm boxer the horse)


Verse 1

My heart broke and shattered

On the open road.

The day I first heard

you were gone.

The million stories you told are

All kept in the shards of my heart.

This road seems endless

And covered with heartless shadows

Without you by my side.

But I still feel you near

It's like you're still here

Chorus

you could've stayed a little longer

And help us stay a little stronger

But God had better things in mind.

The kind words you've said will stay in my heart and

Your legacy will carry on

Through those whose lives you touched

You taught us to be fighters

In our own fight of life

It's like you never left

Verse 2

Remember when we first met

I was a little guy who never knew

how to stand on his own two feet.

You taught me how to stay strong

when life got the best of me.

Your memory is still here.

Now I can stand on my own

Cause you're here helping me

Chorus

you could've stayed a little longer

And help us stay a little stronger

But God had better things in mind.

The kind words you've said will stay in my heart and

Your legacy will carry on

Through those whose lives you touched

You taught us to be fighters

In our own fight of life

It's like you never left

Verse 3

I hear your voice in the darkest silence

And I whisper back in sweet correspondence.

Your words guide me through the darkness

And comfort me in my sadness.

When the fog never cleared

Just like the old days

When you were still here.

But I know I'll be okay

Bridge

When life gets rough

I remember what you taught me

That being strong

Wasn't about how tough I was.

It was all about never giving up

Chorus

you could've stayed a little longer

And help us stay a little stronger

But God had better things in mind.

The kind words you've said will stay in my heart and

Your legacy will carry on

Through those whose lives you touched

You taught us to be fighters

In our own fight of life

It's like you never left

Ending

Thank you for the things you've done

I still can't believe you're gone.

"Everything will be ok in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end."

Aw, this is sad and I like it. Especially the chorus!
