Miss You (RIP Kondor, Martin OIF 29APR04)

I miss you my buddy and I miss you my friend
I was there beside you until the end

I saw you pay that priceless cost
The day you left I was lost

You were my friend for so many years
Now I'm alone with mourning tears

I will strive, to keep your memory alive
So that all will know the reason you died

You gave your life so all could be free
You didn't fight alone you fought with me

Today is so hard to get past the pain
Your memory hits me like an invisible rain

With so many people you left behind
I can only imagine the pain in their mind

So many words I want to say
But its hard to get them out, at least today

I remember your smile so big a bright
You could always make me laugh day or night

You were truly an angel here on earth
What a blessing you were since your birth

I'll stop for now cause my eyes are so wet I cannot see
I will continue to pray for your family cause I know they are praying for me
