Summer ends its balmy days
As your sun has set
Never again to rise
Never to forget

The path to heaven beckoned
And no matter how you tried
It was just too hard to resist
You had to say goodbye

You asked God to stop the world
No more could you pretend
Now get the rest you so deserve
Your journey at an end

Our father, our friend, our hero
Sleeping without breath
So vibrant in the life you led
So peaceful now in death

Even though the light went out
Never to return
The candle you lit in all our lives
Will continuously burn

And when we’re searching for the photograph
You can’t always find
Remember precious things are stored
In the closet of the mind

Those memories are something
That no-one can steal
They just leave a heartache
No-one can heal
