about

My niece died at a young age. The lyrics are adapted from a poem my brother wrote and read at her memorial service.

lyrics

There's an open gate where we all must pass
You go first and I'll go last
To the other side. I know not where
Then one day I'll meet you there

As you fell I shared your crash
Your body shattered and my heart lost
Took one more breath then turned to ash
On to the other side you've crossed
So I set you free

You graced your days with none to spare
Your life a stroke on a canvas bare
Why you'd go I'll never know
Just close my eyes and I let you go
I set you free. I set you free

It's so hard to say goodbye
Still I let your spirit fly
With you was born a piece of me
It still grows as I set you free
I set you free. I set you free
I set you free. I set you free
