Don't grieve for me now I'm Free
I'm following the path God has laid, you see.
I took his hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day to laugh, to love to work to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that peace at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much,
good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift your hearts and peace to thee,
God wanted me - He set me free.
I MISS BET'O
BET'O - BET'O YOU WERE MY FRIEND STEVE
HAAR REALLY, BUT THE NAME BET'O TOOK YOU FROM BEGINNING TO END A BAD ASS ALWAYS, - YOU DID
YOUR TIME, YOU RACED THE RACE. A DAMN GOOD PERSON WITH OLD WORLD VALUES,, YET
DANGEROUS TO YOURSELF IN SO MANY WAYS.
YOU KNEW YOUR TIME WAS NEAR TO END, GOODBYE'S WERE NOT YOUR SPECIALTY, BLACK HEARTS YOU
COULD NEVER DEPEND. YOU WILL BE MISSED ALWAYS AND ALBUQUERQUE WILL NEVER BE THE
SAME. YOU BROUGHT FRIENDSHIP BACK TO ME AT A TIME THAT I WAS LONELY AND GOING
INSANE. I WILL ALWAYS CHERISH WHAT LITTLE TIME WE HAD, I HOPE THAT WHEREVER YOUR AT
NOW, THE TIME WILL APPRECIATE YOUR GOOD AND NOT HOLD SO MUCH GREEDY VALUE IN YOUR
BAD. I THANK YOU WITH ALL MY HEART FOR CARING ABOUT ME WHEN EVERYONE ELSE HAD LEFT
ME SO ALONE AND FRIENDS DIDN'T SEEM TO CARE. ONE YEAR OF LONELY MISERY BEFORE
YOUR DEATH DID TAKE YOU FROM BEHIND, THREE MONTHS OF YOUR GOOD HEART MADE ME FEEL
GOOD AGAIN, REALIZING PEOPLE WERE LYING, YOU MADE ME FEEL UN-SAD. I WISH THINGS COULD HAVE
BEEN DIFFERENT FOR YOU - THE DEEPNESS OF YOUR DEATH THOUGH WAS THE DEEPNESS IN YOUR
DYING. YOUR SPIRIT IS ALWAYS WELCOME AROUND ME, YOUR SPIRIT JUST LIKE WINE - DRINK
IT ALL UP TO THE LAST DROP AND APPRECIATE YOU MY FRIEND I DID, YOU LISTENED TO ME YOU
PROTECTED ME AND SOMEHOW YOU CONNECTED WITH ME THE WAY I CONNECTED WITH YOU. I WILL
ALWAYS MISS YOU STEVE, YOUR CANDLE ONCE BURNED SO BRIGHT, THIS TOWN IS FALLING APART NOW
GREED HAS TAKEN OVER OUR NIGHTS.!
PS. ALWAYS PINK ROSES, THAT WAY YOU WILL KNOW IT'S ME - I WILL ALWAYS BRING YOU MY
PINK ROSES WHEN EVER I GET THE CHANCE FOR AS LONG AS THIS TOWN I STAY.
