BrooksLooks @ Saying Goodbye to Pam Torres

FOR PAM
PEOPLE COME INTO OUR LIVES
AND WE’RE FOREVER CHANGED
THEN A DAY ARRIVES AND WE MOVE ON
LIVES ARE REARRANGED

YOUR LIFE SO RICH AND VIBRANT
TOO SOON BECOMES THE PAST
GOLDEN DAYS WE SHARED TOGETHER
THEY’VE SLIPPED AWAY TOO FAST

HAPPILY OUR LIVES IN PARALLEL
ON A RARE SWEET STOCKBRIDGE HIGH
ENJOYING LIFE AND LIVING WELL
YOU’RE THERE ALWAYS IN MY MIND’S EYE

SADNESS REIGNS YOU’RE GONE FOREVER
WE SEE IN OUR REAR VIEW MIRROR
ALL THE GIFTS YOU SHARED WITH US
NEVER SO MUCH CLEARER

YOUR SOPHISTICATION
YOUR CALMNESS UNDER PRESSURE
YOUR GENTLE WAYS AND KINDNESS
AMONG YOUR GIFTS WE’LL TREASURE

YOU HELPED US ALL IN COUNTLESS WAYS
YOUR LIFE LIKE OURS AT TIMES A STRUGGLE
A MOM A FRIEND AND KIDS TO RAISE
MUCH TO RESOLVE MUCH TO JUGGLE

YOUR DEATH IS OUR REMINDER
THAT OUR DAYS ARE ALL FINITE
WE’LL HOLD ON TO YOUR SWEET SMILE
SEE YOU EVER IN THE BEST OF LIGHT

YOUR FRIENDS NOW CLOSE AND FAR AWAY
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENTLE WAY
FOR DEMONSTRATING HOW TO LIVE
HOW TO LOVE AND HOW TO GIVE

OUR LIVES TURNED OUT A MEASURE BETTER
BECAUSE YOU’VE COME OUR WAY
WE WISH YOU STAYED WITH US FOREVER
ALAS GOD’S TAKEN YOU AWAY

GOOD BYE DEAR PAMELA WE BID FAREWELL
WE’LL CARRY ON AS TIME WILL TELL
WITH YOU THERE ABOVE WE VISUALIZE
HEAVEN’S NOW MORE ORGANIZED

LIFE’S CURRENT FLOATS US ONWARD
TO PLACES WE NEVER KNOW
WHY DO PEOPLE WE CARE SO MUCH ABOUT
HAVE TO COME AND GO?
