I stared at those words

Doing what I could to fight

Trying to fight the building tears

But I'd lost the fight before I knew it

Images of you

Had already begun to fill my mind

And things I'd heard you say

Were already ringing in my ears

I tried not to look at the photo

Didn't want to see

How they wanted you to be remembered

I was still trying to understand what it meant

Images of you

Had already begun to fill my mind

And things I'd heard you say

Were already ringing in my ears

The words were beginning to blur

As my tears began to fall

I could barely read them

But still I knew what they said
