Good bye Tommy, I can say in all honesty I hardly knew ye...
You think maybe it’s time
I wake up?
Take my place in this world?
Earn the term “brother, friend, neighbor,”
And “Husband” to my girl…
Ever the student, never the teacher
What have I really learned?
That the sun is warm
And fire hot
And both have the power to burn
Some folks wander through life
While others blaze a trail
What is the point I wonder.
Are winners just losers
Who know how to fail?
Some just seem to know better
Others seem lost all the time
What’s the difference between searching and finding
The right words to complete my line?
And all the love both given and received
Is what drives us through the dark.
As all our moments of trial and triumph
Are numbered with death’s final mark.
