Letting go of the thin thread that tied you to consciousness

Falling for the trap that death had set you in

What a mighty soldier you have been

Oh how strong and happy you were

Benevolent eyes that I thought would sparkle forever

Acquiring scars that was inflicted by others around you

‘to drown the demons, to numb the pain’

Till that wasn’t enough and you had scars again

With hands clenched and tears flowing free

Happy for the peace that you found

With a sad sigh I bid you farewell
