I know it will hit me
Like the waves I never quite learned to dive under
But what a thing it must be
To lay down your head and sleep
I am more afraid of pain
I wish more than anything
That you can lay down your head and sleep
But I cannot remember you as you were, my friend
I cannot even remember what colour your eyes are.
And I cannot pray for you, my friend
I don't quite know how
But I will let it hit me
Like the waves I never quite learned how to dive under
And sink, or swim
For a dear friend.
