To Our beloved brother:
A Wish and A Prayer
May your spirit soar in freedom
From the fears that gripped so tight.
May you find the peace you searched for
As you wandered, lost, in the night.
May your tortured mind be clear and calm
And your tender heart be warm.
May you have no need for strength now.
May there ne'er be another storm.
May the music of the angels
Be the sweet sounds that you hear.
As you're rocked in Heaven's cradle
May you ne'er shed another tear.
We'll wear your memory proudly,
Our beloved brother...our true friend.
May our love for you reach Heaven above
Until we meet again.
