Sand and Water



All alone, I didn't like the feeling.

All alone, I sat and cried.
All alone, I had to find some meaning
In the center of the pain I felt inside.

All alone, I came into this world.
All alone, I will someday die.
Solid stone is just sand and water, baby -
Sand and water, and a million years gone by.

I will see you in the light of a thousand suns.
I will hear you in the sound of the waves.
I will know you when I come, as we all will come,
Through the doors beyond the grave.

All alone, I came into this world.
All alone, I will someday die.
Solid stone is just sand and water, baby -
Sand and water, and a million years gone by.

- Beth Nielsen Chapman

Rest in peace, Tyler Ward. We will miss you.

"When I come to the end of the road,
and the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free....
Miss me a little - but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me - but let me go...
For this is a journey that we all must take
and each must go alone,
It's all a part of a greater plan
a step on the road home.
When you are lonely and sick of heart
go to the friends we know...
and bury your sorrow in doing good deeds
Miss me - but let me go."
by Caliban's dreams

The body is at rest and the spirit is free.

"i'm sorry" seems so inadequate, but it's all i have.

What you wrote was beautiful and uplifting. My heart and prayers go out to Tyler's family and loved ones. I hope they are surrounded by an abundance of love and kindness from those that knew Tyler and those who didn't but wish they had.

I didn't, but I wish I had. I'll be thinking of Tyler's family.
