You are a light against the darkness
You are a path through our maze
You are courage in the face of fear
You are gone and still are near.
You are a hero, a giant, in an epic story
You are peace in a world of worry
You are the smile that sets the tone
A friend for those long way from home.
You are the last drop of wine washing palate
You are the strike of 12 ringing in the air
You are the empty chair in our circle of life
You are the sky unleashing a storm of tears.
Your are the fire in the night
You are the maximum
You touched us all
You made us each tall
Forever, you will be in memoriam.
