My days have come to an end
Now it is my time to bend
My head and look down to the land
And start looking for my stand
Under this beautiful sand
And I hope you will understand

One day when you no longer feel my presence
And when you are feeling lonely
Please don’t use any substances
Because the grave is my home now
Today I’m starting my journey after death
Please pray for me so that this journey will be blessed
My child the sun has set for me
Please don’t cry for a soul set free
I know we have been close
And I know I used to tell you everything
And I told you that I will love you for my every heartbeat

I lift my eyes against the sky,
The earth is crying, so am I?
I lift my eyes again on high,
The moon is smiling, so am I?
So why should you cry?
My daughter this is a journey we all have to take
So you still have a chance to ask for God’s sake,
Sadness flies away on the wings of time
Please tell your mom that I’m doing fine,
And I wish I could say sorry to her,
Because leaving without saying goodbye is not fair.

As I lay my backbone to rest,
Our memories are flooding back
I see you, my wife and daughter,
As you are trying to be strong
As tears hit the pillow
I’m scared of thoughts you might find
As the dark clouds strikes
I see the fear in your eyes as the dog barks,
My daughter, you will be stronger tomorrow,
Don’t grieve for me now I’m free,
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play,
I found the peace at the end of the day.

I know I never said I’m leaving
I never said goodbye,
I was gone before you knew it,
It broke my heart to leave you,
But know that I didn’t leave you alone,
As a part of me is still with you,
So please don’t be burdened with my times of sorrow,
And I wish you the sunshine tomorrow,
Because the grave is my home now
