One of my original songs…

Friend [click to play]

Friend, I remember when we watched fireworks light the sky

How we talked about our dreams on that Fourth of July

Now they tell the story of how we glow and fade

I’ll always have your memory the kind I’ll never trade

You’re looking down from heaven

You don’t hurt anymore

You might have lost a battle but friend you won the war

And friend, I won’t try to pretend that I won’t always miss you

And these selfish tears I cry are really not the issue

The battle is over and I know you’ve paid the cost

But I can hear you singing and I know you haven’t lost

Your looking down from heaven

You don’t hurt anymore

You might have lost a battle but friend you won the war

Your life here is over but there’s no bitter sting

‘cause when I close my eyes I still hear you singing

Friend, just one last thing before you have to go

I can’t wait to walk with you upon those streets of gold.

This is an original song of mine I wrote about twenty years ago for a friend of mine who died of AIDS.  Just thought I’d share, “Friend” with my readers…  and David, I can’t wait to walk with you and Tim upon those streets of gold!

I might be sharing some of my other originals, as well.

    This is beautiful. The lyrics and the voice. Is there someway for me to purchase it?

  2. Timothy Beauchamp Says:

    Well, it was published a long time ago but no one ever did anything with it, so I just thought I’d put it out there and let people enjoy it…

    Thank you for the compliment, Brenda! ;)

    That’s a tough one Tim. I keep flashing on the face of a departed friend. He was such a wonderful guy. I guess we lost him about ‘86.
