Lately you’ve been showing up in my dreams.
I wake up and all I can think is how unfair it is that you’re not here.
How many years have passed,
Remember quitting smoking?
I never realized I had picked up your addiction to Dr Pepper.
I suppose it’s keeping you real with me.
You’ve been showing up in my dreams
I tell you everything is fine
I turned out just fine
The years fade away
You were there on Monday
And gone on Thursday
All I had was a memory …
Sometimes I think I should find the old me
That I’m treading water
Then I remember
Things we always said
And I think about how happy you would be
That I made it
And I don’t hate it.
Hold on to your memories
They are all that keep us alive when we are gone…
