    today friends we gather here
    to say farewell to a boy who was
    impersonating a man.

    i have loved him, cried over him
    yelled at him and made love to him
    but his time, is now up.

    i have listened to this boy say one
    thing and do another,
    i have watched him leave me stranded
    when i tried to get close,

    and seen him grovel for me when i
    make myself, unannounced and sparse.

    i've been tortured by his silence under my
    laughter, i've been amazed at his loquacious
    mumbling's when finally, he finds me again.

    this man, who lies before us, has made flemsy
    attempts at his manhood and has mocked my
    lucid intentions. he has made me happy at times
    when he had no choice ,but to be perfect
    afraid of losing my heart forever,

    but he was to weak to sustain the power
    around him, n take part of
    the wealth i offered
    and to selfish to think otherwise.

    he composed a symphony with no strings,
    tell me how can that be?
    so now,lets mourn his life and celebrate his
    departure, as i have tried to love him

    but turns out, he's only in love with himself
    and even that could not save his life.
    cause he doesn't know how to love
    apparently.

    thank u.
