I remember you -
I remember your white hair,
I remember you sitting in your chair
With your beer and racing form,
I remember you walking down the street,
And I remember your laughter.

Your laughter -
Laughter of a good life,
Laughter from your heart,
Laughter filled with love,
Laughter that was you.
