Lyrics by Rory Dela Rosa

Mommy, please don't cry
I'm as safe as I can be
I know you miss me,
But I've finally been set free
And if you find that you need me
I will be waiting here
To help you get through
And take away your fear
I love you so much mom
But it's time for me to fly
I will see you every night
And I swear it's not goodbye
I promise it's not goodbye

Now, Bubba, please don't cry
I'm still your best friend
We will always be together
There will never be an end
I hope you don't forget
The games we loved to play
So keep me in your heart, yeah
And forever I will stay
I love you so much brother
But it's time for me to fly
I will see you every night
And I swear it's not goodbye
I promise it's not goodbye

Now Daddy, please don't cry
I'm still here everyday
It may not be the same
But beside you I will lay
When you think of me tonight
Hold me tight in your mind
And if you ever again need me
I won't be hard to find
I love you so much daddy
But it's time for me to fly
I will see you every night
And I swear it's not goodbye
I promise it's not goodbye

    General Commenti just found out what this song was written for, it is so sad.

    Rory had just lost her daughter to brain cancer, and now she has it as well.
    Please keep her and the family in your prayers.

    Thank you Chris for being her voice.
