Feels Like Tears From Heaven


Bourbon Run 2010 at Four Roses Distillery

“Feels Like Tears From Heaven”

Once again I have been made very aware
The ‘Power Of Now’, when you are in presence of someone you care

You are not to know that your time with them will be the last
Be present, observe your time because each minute could be the past

We have no idea whats ahead and is a blessing
I did not know the sorrow and heartache that I would be addressing

We lost our good friend Tom on Wednesday the 19th at twilight
The medics tried to save him, they fought for hours but lost the fight

Riding home on his motorbike a car turned in front
Happened so quick, could not stop and he took the brunt

He was a gentle man, quiet, methodical, generous in all ways
We all will miss him and his loved ones will have many empty days

He, for those who did not know him had the clearest blue eye stare
We have had some fun, with a few shots of Patrón , I have even known him to fall off a chair

Recognize Tom with his white cap that never blows off, it makes us laugh
Always tied to his handle bars he has a head band scarf

Tom has ridden with us many thousands of miles
The more he rides the bigger his smiles

As I ride out the gate each day on my Motorbike
I say a small prayer, easy one that I like

‘My dear Angels keep me safe don’t let me fall’
Now I know there is one more, Tom to answer the call

I am going to be safe like the rest of us will be
Cause he will be there around us in spirit, though you won’t see

Lord we will miss him, his walk, his smile, for us it was way too soon
Hugs, his hospitality, to watch him dance with his love to a romantic tune

He just loved to ride but it came to and end that night
The Lord had a different idea, and his might is right

It was his time that night, he did not make it home by the time of seven.
It rained hard next day, when the words came from his friend to me “They feel like tears from heaven’.

Love you Tom
