Pink Ribbon
Pink Ribbon
© 2007 Jim Gach

It's been two years since you went away
I hit the road, no reason to stay
Like tumbleweed blowin' over the hill
I wander about aimlessly still

My friends say your memory will fade
They're trying to help but it feels clichéd
Cause you know I wear that pink ribbon still
And I swear to you I'll wear it until...

Till we meet again at the gates of heaven
Till I see you your smile I?m gonna wear this pink ribbon
I'll wear this pink ribbon through all of my years
Until as we kiss the angels cheer

When the lab confirmed the diagnosis
I felt a cold chill I couldn't express
Choked back tears kissed yours away
We sat silently with everything to say.

Repeat Chorus

You held onto life as long as you could
Awed me with the pain that you withstood
A moment froze as my world stood still
One last breath then your soul said farewell.

Repeat Chorus X2
