I remember walking to your bedside,
Tipping on my toes trying not to be heard,
Each time inching closer,
Each time trying not to say a word,

It’s been so long do you remember,
Days move quickly now it’s so hard to tell,
I haven’t seen you since September,
I hope to see you soon so I can wish you well,

When was the last time you told me,
Those games were your favourite too,
Your eyes so wide open,
Catching the light,
With every shade of blue,

Everything happens for a reason,
So they say when the odds aren’t on your side,
Your heart changes with the seasons,
When September comes I’ll take you for that ride,

You used to like to go for coffee,
Sit in Tim Horton’s and you’d tell me of back home,
Bags and Barrels and riding horses,
And how you came here and made it on your own,

What can you do with your head hanging down,
How do you see with your eyes on the ground,
I’m still waiting for you to reappear,
If only for a moment,
But that moment is what I hold dear,

I remember walking to your bedside,
Everything’s different now and we don’t look the same,
And as you’re cradled like a child,
All that binds us now are some pictures and a name
