Beginnings and Ends – Version 2: For Matthew

I remember you in your childhood

Sounds of your playing in our neighborhood

I heard your laugh and I wish you could

Have known about the future and how it’s no good


I thought about the moment that we said goodbye

Told you that I loved you and it made me cry

I prayed about redemption and I wished for time

Said they left without you and I wonder why


But we’ll be alright

And the pain will only last for the night


I remember you in my memories

Standing there together, for a moment we

Learned about forgiveness, how you’de be alright

 I think about your worries, how I made them mine


I’ve thought about beginnings and I’ve thought about ends

I called you my brother and I called you friend

And I prayed for the brokenness that I thought you’de mend

I learned about life and how it reached its end


I think about heaven and I see you there

Told me that you’re perfect and without care

I know about the beauty of a holy prayer

So I’ll pray about the moment when I see you there


But we’ll be alright

And the pain will only last for the night
