To the woman I look up to,
To the rock that shielded me,
I will eternally thank you
For giving me this life with glee.
To the woman that smiled away her pain,
To the sword that slashed through my own,
I will live on with all that I've gained
From following the strength that you've shown.
To the woman that promised life,
To the light that has stopped shining,
It's time to rest and end this strife,
Your restful passing a sorrowful silver lining.
I will live on with your memory,
I will live on for you,
I will live on with your bravery,
I will live on with no rue.
