To a daring guy I knew...

I wrote something for a daring guy I knew who chose to leave this world too soon...


The first time I saw you I had no clue what you could be
The first time I saw you I had no clue what you'd do to me.
Then when I heard your voice
you were shouting so loudly,
you gave me no choice
but to hear you; I still hear you now.
If I shut my eyes I can still see your face
so clear;
It's as if you were here,
even though you've gone off to a better place
It's as though you're next to me laughing
as you drag me
into our crazed secret days
You'd pretend to be scared and make fun of the looks on my face.

Come give me another dare
'cause you always were prepared to keep me safe.

Remember when we went jet skiing and you called
it jet falling 'cause we couldn't stand up straight?
You told me life was like a balance beam;
falling wasn't as scary as it seems,
& that the scariest part was the wait.

I swear I can still hear you
though I'm nowhere near you
You still give me dares and you still keep me safe.
Come give me another dare, 'cause you're still prepared up there
to keep me safe.
