Thank You (Dedicated To Jimmy)

Everyday I wait for you to come back. It's a simple question of believing and that is what I lack. Nobody will ever forget the 8th wonder of the world, because from the moment we saw you our love for you unfurled. You could crack a joke about anything, from breaking an arm to how you or I sings. Your wacky laugh, your trademark wave... these are all memories that we'll all save. We know we'll see you one day, but that day isn't soon enough. We try to concentrate, but it's getting really tough. What we're feeling now it's so much worse than pain, what we're feeling now we just can't quite explain. We're all wondering the same thing, Why'd it have to be you? But it's useless, really, because there is nothing we can do. It was always comforting to see a smile on your face, but now you're not there and nothing will take your place. 'Hillsborough boy is killed,' that's what the headlines read, I didn't know those were the words that i would come to dread, for it was later that day that i found out it was you and I didn't want to believe it but i knew that it was true. There was a lot of crying when i found out that day. If i could see you just one more time I'd know exactly what to say, "I miss you and I love you, and you don't deserve to die. If anything you were held back," and then I'd simply say "Good-bye." I'd give you a huge hug, and as a single tear rolled down my face, I'd realize, in my heart, there's now an empty space. In the beginning, all I could do was cry, but it's getting easier every day that passes by. Still you died too young and missed out on what life's all about but throughout your life you had not a reason to pout. You always had a smile on your face, and in my opinion, that was the perfect place because everywhere you went you spread your happiness and that will be something that we will all miss. There'd be one more thing I'd want to say as I looked into your eyes because it's really important and I want you to realize, that we never got a chance to say thanks for all you do, so here it goes, we just wanted to say, THANK YOU!
