I Shall Always Know

I am so proud of you my friend...Let us fly high on the wings of hope...

I Shall Always Know



Who will know when you're gone?

Who will weep for your soul?

Who will sing in remembrance?

Who will know your song?

Who will carry you with them?

I shall always know...



I will miss the smile in your eyes

I will miss the dance of joy we shared

I will miss the laughter and tears you brought to me

I will miss the moon which caressed your soul

I will remember your sigh

As I touched your heart and essence ...



Pictures weaved into the walls of my heart

When you were happy

When you were sad

When you held my hand

When you cried in my arms

When life betrayed you...



I can not touch your face

I can not see your eyes

I can not dance with you

I am tied to you with

A silver thread not to be

Broken or lost in time...



My thoughts follow you

As you glance at the moon

An encouraging wind

To guide your flight

To a place beyond eternity

You will never be alone

We will meet again on

The wings of hope....
