Vigil

   
here we are old friend  
your silent vigil means so much to me  
I know somehow I will get through this  
your presence says so  
  
I know of your own tragedies  
somehow you slug it out day after day  
you don't cower in a corner  
with thoughts of I'm beaten  
might as well give up  
   
no you come back swinging  
when life throws blows  
you man up and handle your business  
that takes guts and tenacity  
   
I don't know what it's like to be that fierce  
not in reality  
I can hear you in my mind    
come on candyass fight back  
 
life is fucking you over  
now prove to yourself what you're made of  
show me I haven't wasted my time on you  
   
you're a prime example of a survivor
I don't believe in accidents  
I'm grateful to have crossed your path  
   
one friend to another  
thank you for being here tonight
