Faint music to your ears,
pale colours familiar for years,
no tales we hadn't heard
they brought laughter all the same
even when the context had disappeared

With a glint in your eye that no light could cast,
we all shone a little brighter, even when time had passed
In a room with stained glass that never grew on you,
but it was a home that you fought to get back to

And when the call came through,
I was asleep in dreams awash with something new,
then awake I never knew
how I should go about things the way I said I would

It didn't matter, we came together,
underneath a looming bigger picture,
completing a scene that you were always waiting for,
what you were always longing for...

Damn the circumstance that paid for your absence,
while the rest of us worry about the old man
behind your shadow, with the loneliest of thoughts

Lost in photographs, and their capture of warmth
against the cold reality of finality,
how this could not mean much more...

I'll remember you like this,
instead of the first glimpse of what is left
when strength can no longer persist

And when the wave comes through,
we can't forget the truth,
for the years the void was some of us letting go
of something that kept us in tune

We can only hope the faint music became crystal clear to you
