My Parting Words

I love you, my friend
Kindred spirit, distant confidant
A feeling I had lost along with childhood
A closeness of a different kind
A meeting of familiar minds

I look up to you
Gentle brother, co-conspirator
The challenge to become someone beyond me
The whisper of encouragement
The laughter in accomplishment

May I always be to you
The whisper of encouragement
And I hope you never lose
The kindness at your core
‘Cause nothing hurts me more

Forgive me, my friend
I’ve forgotten how to hold my tongue
I know I can’t avoid appearing foolish
That kindness caught me unprepared
So go and I will meet you there

May I always be to you
The whisper of encouragement
And I hope you never lose
The kindness at your core
But grant me one thing more
Might I be this once, to you
The sister that you never had
In all the things you long to do:
Be you

Don’t you ever forget me
Don’t you ever forget me

May I always be to you
The whisper of encouragement
And I hope you never lose
The kindness at your core
‘Cause nothing breaks me more
No, nothing breaks me more…
