My Best Boy

I can’t do this but I know I must
I have your love, I’ve earned your trust
The time is near to say goodbye 
So to draw my inner strength I try

My heart is broken, my soul destroyed
I can’t see a future living with this void
You’re my better half, my life, my joy
You’re my special lad and my very best boy

But it’s because of this I know I must
Find a way to cope and make little fuss
The girls all need me to be strong
To show them all how life must go on

I’ll help keep your memory burning bright
I’ll let no one forget your love, your light
My saviour I thank you with all my heart
My dearest Kodibear, nearly time to part

But know this my lad I’m ever grateful
For your presence these years, strong and stable
You opened my heart, let me love a new
Cheeky chappy you are, but my angel it’s true

So when time’s upon us for you to go
As I fracture and break this much I know
I will hold you tight, I will kiss your face
and whisper I love you, let you go with grace

No more struggling my love, I promise you this
On the other side it’s pain free, just bliss
You will only know love right until the end
My life, my boy, my saviour, my friend….
