That one day, I found myself in a room,
People's heads low, and flowers refused to bloom.
Heaven fell from everyone's eyes,
Well, Maybe except for mine,
Either way, I paid my respects that was long overdue,
'Cause I know I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you.
You traveled to a country that was completely unknown to you,
From China to Canada, man, you made it really far,
On your own, you got an apartment, a job and a car.
To me you'll always be a star.
It tore me, that I couldn't shed any tears,
Did I really love you or was I just faking it here?
You're gone, leaving your wife alone.
I could only imagine how much she cried at home,
'Cause when you were sick, she called mom everyday on the phone.
And on that day, she spoke with an unusually shaky tone.
So the mortician carried your coffin away,
But not before my uncle had something to say,
"He was always a great man" he exclaimed.
Then the time to take you away finally came.
They dug a hole about 10 feet deep,
That's where they'll place you to eternally sleep.
Everyone looked at the hole with despair.
Or maybe was it fear?
That you'll never again be near.
A priest came to do prayers,
No one spoke, only stared,
Finally, with your body, they buried our family's tears.
So I'll pretend that's where the story ends,
But years later, I can't forget.
Why couldn't I cry when you died?
Maybe my tears were buried far before you disappeared.
