I saw you at the funeral all dressed in black
You didn't see me watching, I was stood at the back
I saw you softly kiss the shiny coffin top
And the shaking that you couldn't stop
I heard our song as the curtains closed
You did so well to stay composed
Your speak of my life was hard to hear
It upset me so much as I moved near
I put my arms around your shivering frame
And whispered in your ear 'You weren't to blame'
Fighting my own inner demons of hell
Knowing that this was the final farewell
You held my hand through all my pain
As I watched your teardrops fall like rain
Always there to cheer me up
Especially when I'd had enough
You tried to hide your tears from me
But your sadness was there for all to see
I tried my hardest to beat this disease
But alas, it dropped me to my knees
I had no intentions of leaving, the decision wasn't mine
I took my last breath as the moonlight shined
Now I no longer feel the drain
As my body ceases to the strain
Blinded by the light as it shows the way
To the Pearly Gates of God's highway
I heard your screams as I floated away
For once not hiding your emotional display
I will always be close as you go about your day
Listening to memories of our songs that you play
I will caress your face as the tears start to fall
Tasting the teardrops in a forgotten pool
Please scatter my ashes in my favourite place
The one where we met and played kiss chase
Where we had our first lingering kiss
And I vowed I would make you my princess
I will never forget my one true love
As each day I will admire you from above
Please don't forgot me in the forthcoming years
I hope you think about me, but please no tears
The pain will ease in good time
And never regret that you were mine
Look out of your window on cold winter days
I will be the red-breasted robin who wants to stay
