In Loving Memory

This post isn't a motorcycle related post but a tribute to one of my close friends.

After seeing one of my closest mates who I have known now for 10 years, VTR Man yesterday he told me that his dad had passed away the night before. Although I have never met VTR mans parents I am well assured that if the old saying is true 'that like father like son' then he must have been a good man.  From myself and our family we are thinking of you mate.

The following song is by one of my all time favourite bands. It was written by guitarist Mark Tremonti after his mother died. Its called......

IN LOVING MEMORY
by
ALTER BRIDGE
Thanks for all you've done
I've missed you for so long
I can't believe you're gone
You still live in me
I feel you in the wind
You guide me constantly

I've never knew what it was to be alone, no
Cause you were always there for me
You were always there waiting
And ill come home and I miss your face so
Smiling down on me
I close my eyes to see

And I know, you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel I can't hold on
I sing tonight cause it comforts me

I carry the things that remind me of you
In loving memory of
The one that was so true
Your were as kind as you could be
And even though you're gone
You still mean the world to me

I've never knew what it was to be alone, no
Cause you were always there for me
You were always there waiting
But now I come home and it's not the same, no
It feels empty and alone
I can't believe you're gone

And I know, you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel I can't hold on
I sing tonight cause it comforts me

I'm glad he set you free from sorrow
I'll still love you more tomorrow
And you will be here with me still

And what you did you did with feeling
And You always found the meaning
And you always will
And you always will
And you always will


And I know, you're a part of me
And it's your song that sets me free
I sing it while I feel I can't hold on
I sing tonight cause it comforts me
