where nothing is ever as real as it seems.
Behind every shadow, each unopened door-
lies another that leaves my heart worn and sore.
I remember his face, I remember his smile-
I was young when he died, just an innocent child.
So time may not heal, what I expect it to heal-
but I don’t always honor the way that I feel.
I try to teach my kids, to cherish each day-
In the blink of an eye time will take it away.
It’s quick and uncalled for, there’s never enough-
so love like the world isn't tainted and rough.
Stand with conviction, be bold, and be sweet-
be brave and be kind, you'll have the world at your feet.
I’ll never forget the day that he died-
I lost something that day, my innocent side.
The day that I knew life could change in a minute-
and yet I’m still lucky to have loved and lived in it.
