The earth stood still today,
When we heard of your fall.
You were a son to some, and a friend to all.
Your smile and your laughter
Filled each room to the rafter.
Not a day went by
Without giving your best try,
but now all that’s left is the temptation to cry.
To mourn or to celebrate?
I think you’d choose the latter,
and crack a beer to commemorate.
A life full of love.
A man we were all truly in awe of.
A man moved away today.
Not just any man, a very special man.
A son moved away today.
A son who was loyal to his mother and father.
A brother moved away today.
A brother who learned from and loved his siblings.
A friend moved away today.
A friend that made everyone feel welcome, even the stranger.
A lover moved away today.
A lover whose tenderness can never be replaced.
My best friend moved away today.
A best friend who’s place I’d rather take.
Where he’s moved, I am not sure.
Why he’s gone, I’ll never know.
In the meantime, I’ll wait.
And love him like he’s never gone.
