Godspeed

Tomorrow when we gather without you
Remembering your laughter and vibrance
There will be tears you won’t ever see
While we look craving for your glance

Of many unfulfilled dreams of friendship
And the young years you’ll live elsewhere
For all the amazing things you let us keep
Besides wishing we had more time to care

While we have many celebrations of your life
The regret that there won’t be a goodbye
Will haunt us forever in questionable strife
We will always wonder why you, why, why?

Words and actions will always be inadequate
In ways that we are unable to foresee
But we will try to be the most passionate
That you will continue to teach us to be

Being there for the ones you left behind
Is going to be the hardest act to lead
It’s our turn to fulfill what you entwined
Until our time to join you and godspeed
