clenching the water there is no grip
always knew there would be an end
to this trip
take in the ice he feels no pain
all is lost only to his gain

forever is to long to wait
but you had to take that great escape

tries to fly but only to find
he will hit the ground
with one motion it comes to an end
so goodbye my friend

remember the days that we stared
at the sky at the clouds and ships
that passed us by
monkey bars and the jungle gym
seemed too high too high for him
