Burn Eternal

As I look into your eyes
I see a flame that I know will never die
And even though there will be times
That I'll look into your eyes
And I'll wish you were alive
I know I will be strong
And I know I'll carry on
'Cause inside I see a flame that will never die

Although we didn't always talk
I know you were watching like a hawk
That if I ever needed you
You'd appear out the blue
And though you never needed me
You always saw the best in me

You stood by my side when no one else would,
Saw what was inside; saw all of the good
I can’t believe that you’re gone
How am I supposed to move on?

When I look into your eyes
And see that flame that I know will never die
I remember all those times
That I looked into your eyes
And I wished you were alive
I know I will be strong
And I know I'll carry on
'Cause inside I see that flame that will never die

We didn't always see eye to eye
But I know on you I could rely
We used to be the best of friends
I hope that feeling never ends
The memories I have are thermal
I'll miss you in your rest eternal

You stood by my side when no one else would,
Saw what was inside; saw all of the good
I can’t believe that you’re gone
How am I supposed to move on?

I still look into your eyes
And I still see that flame inside
And even though there are some times
That I look into your eyes
And I wish you were alive
I know that I'll be strong
And I know I'll carry on
'Cause deep inside I know that flame will never die

          A mourning ray of sunshine glimmers

          There, with warming light in faintest shimmers

          Singing songs of solitude and grace

          I'd trade my candle with my life, for a single glimpse a single picture

          One last look upon your face

          Very poignant piece, your words flow like lyrics to a great country or maybe even a blues song. excellent work, a very enjoyable read

          Some lines relate to a child's relationship with a parent. I relate to those lines. All of it, actually for me.
