A Wish And A Prayer

May your spirit soar in freedom

From the fears that gripped so tight.

May you find the peace you searched for

As you wandered, lost, in the night.

May your tortured mind be clear and calm

And your tender heart be warm.

May you have no need for strength now.

May there ne’er be another storm.

May the music of the angels

Be the sweet sounds that you hear.

As you’re rocked in Heaven’s cradle

May you ne’er shed another tear.

I’ll wear your memory proudly,

My only brother…my true friend.

May my love for you reach Heaven above

Until we meet again.
