William

I heard your name was William
That your friends called you Will
You’ve left now
And so your name is on
The tip of their tongues
It never leaves them

I heard you were the class clown
A prankster, a bit of a laugh
Just a boy
I’ve seen the tears
Holding her tight
Because you can’t anymore

I heard you struggled in life
Because you felt deep
More than blood ran through
And sometimes that
Gets all too much
Sometimes we have to fly

I heard all the people who love you
You still make them laugh
Just the idea of what you
Would do
I can feel every sigh
Every chuckle

I can feel the pain

I heard your name was William
That your friends called you Will
And I can promise
That I will always let your name
Fall onto my ears
As long as she utters it
