  19. To the Entire family and friends of Bae Bae.

    They say there is a reason
    They say that time will heal
    But neither time nor reason will change the way I feel.
    For no-one knows the heartache,
    That lies behind our smiles,
    No one knows how many times we have broken down and cried.
    We want to tell you something,
    So there won’t be any doubt
    You’re so wonderful to think of,
    BUT so hard to be without
    May God mend the broken hearted.
