Saying Goodbye

As the music plays I drown out the sound around Reality slowing fading away The lyrics come at me Like a wave of emotions Remembering the beautiful pain Memories shoot through my head Like a silent film black and grey I try to remember his voice his soft touch his presence him I open my eyes to the harsh reality I am here and he is not I look at his stone cold face I tell him I am here I know he can't hear me but I know he is watching Before they take him away I grab his hand I tell him I love you I'll see you soon Goodbye papa

Like a black & white movie, you try to recall the VOICE. Lovely style, great suspense, to find HE IS DAD! "Remembering the beautiful pain" and "I'll see you soon Goodbye papa[,]" are lines to remember.
