For Suzanne: 

 

I will be there for you

waiting in the place between worlds

as night ended

a morning you never saw

the sirens echoed through Freshwater valley

three times the red lights flashed wailing

sensed your pain as body separated from soul

saw the the sobbing tears at your memorial

hope there's reason beyond the madness

as my drum keeps your heartbeat

and grieving pulls your people together

what joy to have you in keeping

if only for awhile...
