this loss that is so wrong.
what's left is but a gaping void,
silence in a world of song.
So young and full of life they were,
these boys who are now gone.
They lived it up right to the end,
though their road was not that long.
It's impossible to fathom
that we'll never hear again
the voices of these two young men
ringing out amidst the din.
No more sounds of the low "E" string,
no skating down the ice.
Just the pain of loss and hurt
is echoed in the night.
Many things we'll see and feel
will remind us of our boys,
like Slayer and parties and skating and fun
and we'll remember them.
The faces here are sombre,
the tears are falling fast,
but our boys live on forever
in our hearts, they're safe to rest.
