    its hard to believe you're no longer in my presence
    even though i know you're looking down on me from heaven
    looking back, all those memories eat my soul daily
    sometimes i wish i could go back just to replay em
    your smile, your laugh, your facial expressions when you went through your emotions
    you were like my reflection, you were the only one who stayed true to love and devotion

    time keeps passing, but my mentality hasn't changed
    sometimes i accidently dial your number or wake up in the middle of the night and call your name
    i stopped by your father's house, he's doing better, I'm glad one of us is
    Your children even learned to face reality, but most of the family won't let reality exist

    i regret a lot of the things i did and didn't do, even though i know i shouldnt
    death sure can open a person's eye cuz if you were still here i know i wouldnt
    i remember staring at your casket, i didnt want to cry because you always said crying wont help
    but i had to, i couldnt hold it back, you cant imagine all the emotions that i felt

    i was mad that you left me, sad that you were gone, confused because you were young
    shocked because it happened, in denial because a week before that we were kickin back in the sun
    i remember you told me, we were going to make it happen together
    now im doing all of this by myself and no one is here with me to face the bad weather
    but im doing this for you, im going to make sure the fam is living appropriately
    so i remain strong and live life the best i can while my dad is coaching me

    yeah... it took awhile to get back on my feet
    but i cant mourn forever, i can only let you live through me
    you're still my heart, death cant even break those ties
    these are words that come from my heart and shoot to those skies
    im finally living....
    but its still hard to believe you're gone....
