Walking Tall
Author: DarkCloud


Walking tall

Striving to survive
There is no way it will revive
The life that I had
I wouldnít call it bad
My family helped me through
Even when I bit more than I could chew
Donít fear for me
Youíve made me happier than I though I could be
I love you all
But itís my time to walk tall
These are the words I would be saying
Instead I am in heaven praying
All of those that didnít get a chance to say good bye
I know you love me and I love you
But there was nothing more you could do
Iím sorry I had to leave
And there is no reason to grieve
Because I love you all
And itís my turn to walk tall

Dedicated to the life and death of Robert Joesph Berendes
