Feeling nothing
Lonely empty
You try to walk away but you fall
You cannot understand what's this for

In this world I see it more
The pain you feel that I have known

You see my face and then you see nothin'
Confused. you turn and live on
I turn my face
You're staring back and then
Look at yourself and live again

Can't see me. you feel me
Want me. you'll find me
I'll be your everything
When you call
You'll need me more & more
When you fall

In this world I see it more
The pain you feel that I have known

You see my face and then you see nothing
Confused you turn and live on
I turn my face
You're staring back and then
Look at yourself and live again

How many times have you looked
At yourself and felt mistreated
How does it feel to know that
This life of yours is real
All of your life you've been led
To believe your nothin'
So look at yourself and start to live again

You see my face and then you see nothing
Confused you turn and live on
I turn my face
You're staring back and then
Look at yourself and live again

If you don't change you'll be nothin'

So look at yourself and live again

I turn my face
You're staring back and then

So look at yourself and live again

Sevendust "Live Again" from the album Animosity

Patrick passed in the wee hours of the morning today. I left the door open most of the morning so he could go after. This song is his and was playing when his body was taken. It fits him.

I'm not sad that he's gone as his body gave out long before his spirit did. He's at work now and he's happy, so that makes me happy. I'm sure on his break he'll look in on me.

And if smiling is a crime right now, put me in jail. He's free now and we are both at peace.

The way that you've walked through this has been so beautiful to watch. I am saddened and yet so happy that you are both at peace. I too will have a beer in his honor this evening. God bless you for taking such good care of our cancer brother. Well done. Now rest.

I also am saddened to hear this news. In the years B.C. (Before Cancer), I never would have believed that hearing of the loss of someone that I did not even know would affect me at all. However, I think that all of us who are in this epic fight share a common bond and we tend to feel each other's pain much more than most people do. It certainly sounds like you fought the good fight and I wish you peace.

April,
I went out for a fish fry tonite and ordered a beer & yes, I said "here's to you Patrick"! My sister said "who's Patrick"? And I told her he's the new Irish guy in heaven who's looking down and saying "what the heck she's drinking a Miller lite?" Sorry Patrick, but I just don't like those dark irish beers.
April, hope your doing okay. The days ahead of you will be hard to go through, but think of all of us who have gone through this and know that we're here for you when you need to talk.
Take care. "Carole"
P.S. If Tom sees Patrick, he'll gladly have a beer with him cause he loved Irish beer.
