To Say Goodbye
Today I laid my best friend to rest
Today the heart stopped in his breast
Today the grief comes unbearably strong
Today my best friend is gone.
Today I lost the best part of me
Today it becomes but a memory
Today the pain engulfs my heart
Today my world has come apart.
Today I weep, and sob, and cry
Today I ask the question why
Today I rage at the fate unfair
Today is almost too much to bare.
Tomorrow I will accept you are at rest
Tomorrow I'll think on what I loved best
Tomorrow I will still be sad
Tomorrow I will be thankful for the time we had.
Years I had, of you with me
Years of friendship and fond memories
Years of flying, that you gave to me
Years of showing me ways to be free
But that was then and this is now
To say farewell, I know not how
So today, my heart breaks as I bow my head and cry
As today, I tell my best friend goodbye.
