Near to the door he paused to stand
as he took his class ring off her hand.
All who were watching did not speak
as a silent tear ran down his cheek.
And through his mind the memories ran of the moments
they walked and ran in the sand hand and hand.
But now her eyes were so terribly cold
for he would never again have her to hold.
They watched in silence as he bent near
and whispered the words "I LOVE YOU" in her ear.
He touched her face and started to cry
as he put on his ring and wanted to die.
And just then the wind began to blow
as they lowered her casket into the snow.
This is what happens to man alive.
When friends let friends drink and drive.
