The candle glimmers through the darkened glass. As it fades away the smoke grows thicker. And its fire dances after its own music. Something we’ll never hear. Only admire and consider its simplicity perfect and beautiful.
Now it reminds me of you. And as it starts struggling for survival I hope that it will never end. But when it calms down before the final I feel that it knows that the battle is lost and it will fade away. Sure this can’t remind me of you. But it does now.
You never lost a battle. We all could hear your music. When you were there it was our music. And your fire never faded away. Never hidden behind darkened glass. Its dance was always faster and stronger. Its shine was there for everybody. It was our warmth, our joy, our laughter. Whenever we talk about it we smiled.
As never seen before you never stopped burning. You never rested, never fade away. Making us stronger, braver. And always reminding us that we got to be together, stay together, feed together, drink, smoke, fight and party together. And you loved. You loved like nobody else did. You loved us all. You loved life like no one else could, and no one else will.
One day you became faster. And you ran on twisty turns. So fast that we almost can’t see you sometimes. From that moment we could hear as you came and gone. We could distinguish your sound and your stories became more passionate. Everybody wanted for some resemblance to be just like you. Ones wanted to be fast like you, others strong like you, others wanted to be the one you love. Some wanted to feel just for a moment your passion. Those were also the days when you started loving sunny days.
You symbolized the moment. The present. Your actions were only about now.
Half man, half machine. Faster and stronger. We could never keep up. Somehow, one moment we stopped trying. You were one. One for all. Our One.
From now on your music was the loudest, your fire was the strongest and your life was all passion. That’s how the Angel found you. You were on everyone’s lips, hearts, thoughts and souls and he came for you. Because you did it all.
And you knew how to say good bye. First you left us signs. Second you gathered us all and party like you never did, loved one like you never did, and warmed us all.
And you met the Angel.
Your soul will always be a part of us. We learned from you.
