"I’ll carry you within in my heart,
From now until we meet again.
Please stop your crying-I don’t want to see your tears,
I know that it hurts but this isn’t the end.
My time has come,
So it’s time for us to let go,
Saying goodbye is so painful,
It hurts us both, I know.
But you don’t need me with you now,
I’m not the one that makes you strong.
The strength you needed and thanked me for,
Was inside you all along.
And believe me when I say I’ll keep you in my heart,
Now and forever till we meet again.
Please don’t cry for what is gone,
Because for us there is no end.
Here’s my time to move on,
You helped me through sun and through war,
You always said I was your guide,
But without you I never would have made it this far.
You’ll be okay without me,
I’ll keep watch over you from beyond the light.
So don’t think you’ve lost me forever,
I’m always alive in your dreams at night.
I promise I’ll always carry you inside my heart,
And think of you till the day we meet again.
So dry your tears and smile for me,
Despite the pain this is not the end.
So say good-bye but not forever,
Because a bond like ours can never be broken,
And please stay strong and remember me,
And be glad for all the feelings that don’t need to be spoken.
We both knew this day would come,
One day we’d have to part.
But you, my friend, I’ll always carry,
Within a special place inside my heart."
