For a friend. I'll never not share this.

It's Not Goodbye; It's I'll See You Later

Dearly departed friend,

I long to see your face again

I don’t sleep, I just dream

Of a time when this grief will end

Only a few worn out strings on my guitar

To try and mend my heart

But right now

It’s locked up in the dark

And I’m a ghost so I can’t

Feel these strings bend

Still I try to piece it back

Together again with this pen

And these words I’m trying to send

Out to your sleeping soul and anyone else

Who’s listening in

When I’ll meet you on the other side,

I don’t know when

But my dearly departed friend,

I long to see your face again

Dearly departed friend,

Will my carol of groans

Ever reach your resting bones?

Well I tell you I believe,

But I don’t know how

Yeah, the caged bird sings

But he don’t make a sound

Because their ain’t anybody

Around to hear him now

All of the clouds look down with a frown

Because they hear my voice

Carrying its sorrow abound

Even the wolf and the hound

Have their heads tucked down

At the sight of these shoulders

Walking with this weight around

My dearly departed friend,

I just wish you were still around

Dearly departed friend,

No, the drugs don’t work

I know… They just make me worse

But I need a spark for this heart

That left along with you

In your hearse

No, the drugs don’t hurt

In fact, I have become numb now

Your memories paint the town

So I won’t be coming down soon

Night sky,

I’m faded

Eyes stay shaded,

Let the pain escape to the moon

And I hate it but I can't cry

Cause if I did it would be a monsoon

Dearly departed friend,

I love you

Please don’t be saddened by my

Bluesy tune

I know you’re with me in my heart

So I’m never really losing you

But still my soul is heavy like lead

And only the memories in my head

Still play their damn instruments on time

Pictures in my mind of you

combine until I’m lost in the

last trace of the lines on your face

And I forget that I’m supposed to rhyme

Dearly departed friend,

No, the drugs don’t work

But at least when I’m high

I can feel your arms around me

Just one more time

Sorry, but I won’t lie

Still blue, but I won’t cry

Cause when your soul’s in heaven

Then you never really die

Dearly departed friend,

I love you like the sun and the sky

Spread your wings and fly

I promise to keep your memory alive

Sincerely signed
