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
