about

I'm trying hard not to mourn the dead, to see it another way
And to celebrate the life I knew instead
What else is there left that I can say, with so few words that were ever said about the man who made me the man I am today?

For a goliath of a man, this is a thank you
To all of those who stood with us on the hardest day, this is a thank you
The last four miles are the hardest, but I will never cross them alone
There will never be a prouder son

For all the memories I have inside my head, it's the little ones, the simple things that I'll remember best
When you realise your own mortality that your hero, a body once so powerful shows some fragility
Remaining undeterred and ever defiant, still fighting to the end, still fighting it with every ounce of strength

The last four miles I won't cross alone
I'll never cross alone

I sit surrounded by scraps from the papers
When I've heard enough to fill out a book
And I feel like everyday you're still here
I know you'll always be in here
There will never be a prouder son, I will see you again when I come to my end
The last four miles are the hardest but I will never cross them alone
