A Message To Me
Author: Dino Hi


That unbearable, wrench tighting chest pain and choking words
A sleepless night, seeing orange and green stars flying upwards
The tears filling your eye sockets, can't stop in vain
A shirt, shoes, eyeglasses, a sight of pain
Tossing and turning, trying to keep every memory alive, it hurts
We are left to carry our Dad's will, his place of birth
The ashes of pain, carried on my back, close to my heart
To fly into the heavens, land in Paradise gate, a park
When all is done, that final good-bye, now a memory
But the memory, haunts, in sleepless nights so clearly
A dream one night, I hear music, I see a falling star
On a cliff, seeing him sing, and play his guitar
I awake! What's wrong? I hear this melody
I know not this song, I must play his tape, so early
Room is quiet, mind is focus, with open ears
The melody is found, I listen to words, tremble with tears
The heart is hurting, mind and body full of grief
Hearing his voice, message to me to ease my pain, for relief
As he sings, "The Impossible Dream"
"Fighting this unbeatable foe, his quest to follow that star
To fight for the right, and to march to a heavenly cause
And if he stays true, to this glorious quest
His heart will be peaceful and calm
When he's laid to his rest"
Hearing him sing, the pain was then lifted from my heart
Resume life again, where his memory, is never far apart

Oh this one touched my heart Dino, and brought tears to my eyes. It is so hard to bear when you lose a loved one, but then we find that something to remember and feel they are near, which helps us to move on.
