Bye Bye



This is for my people who just lost somebody
Your best friend, your baby, your man, or your lady
Put your hand way up high
We will never say bye (no, no, no)
Mamas, daddies, sisters, brothers, friends and cousins
This is for my people who lost their grandmothers
Lift your head to the sky 'cause we will never say bye

As a child there were them times
I didn't get it but you kept me in line
I didn't know why you didn't show up sometimes
On Sunday mornings, and I missed you
But I'm glad we talked through
All them grown folk things
Separation brings
You never let me know it
You never let it show because
You loved me and obviously
There's so much more left to say
If you were with me today face to face

[Chorus:]
I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on like
"I wish I could talk to you for awhile"
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by
And it's true that you've reached a better place
Still I'd give the world to see your face
And I'm right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say bye bye

Bye Bye [3x]
Bye bye

And you never got the chance to see how good I've done
And you never got to see me back at number one
I wish that you were here to celebrate together
I wish that we could spend the holidays together

I remember when you used to tuck me in at night
With the Teddy Bear you gave to me that I held so tight
I thought you were so strong
You'd make it through whatever
It's so hard to accept the fact you're gone forever

[Chorus]
I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on like
"I wish I could talk to you for awhile"
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by
And it's true that you've reached a better place
Still I'd give the world to see your face
And I'm right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say bye bye

Bye bye [3x]
Bye bye

This is for my peoples who just lost somebody
Your best friend, your baby, your man, or your lady
Put your hand way up high
We will never say bye (no, no, no)
Mamas, daddies, sisters, brothers, friends and cousins
This is for my peoples who lost their grandmothers
Lift your head to the sky 'cause we will never say bye

[Chorus]
I never knew I could hurt like this
And everyday life goes on like
"I wish I could talk to you for awhile"
Miss you but I try not to cry
As time goes by
And it's true that you've reached a better place
Still I'd give the world to see your face
And I'm right here next to you
But it's like you're gone too soon
Now the hardest thing to do is say bye bye

Still in disbelief that Aunty has left us.

I still remembered that Aunty was there when we first visit your home few years ago back in Miri.
I still remembered that Aunty was there to pick me up at Miri Bus Station 3 years ago to bring me to SM Sains Miri for Nurturing The Eagle Program.
I still remembered that Aunty was at my home, using my laptop, login into Facebook, playing Restaurant City during last Christmas.
I still remembered that the last time I saw Aunty was 3 months ago, on 20 March, the day I went back to UTP. Aunty was still in good shape, still can talk, still can walk.

From what I saw last time, I thought Aunty is going to be better. Despite of the health condition that wasn't encouraging, I do believe that Aunty will get through this. I was very hopeful until the call that I made to mum that she told me Aunty was diagnosed with forth stage cancer. I was speechless. When mum told me your condition, Aunty seems to suffer a lot and it is hard for me to imagine what Aunty is going through. I know it is only matter of time before Aunty leaving us forever but not this soon.

I am glad get to see Aunty for the last time while still in good shape. Memories and moments spent with Aunty will be cherished forever.

Aunty, rest in peace.
God bless your soul.
Miss you...
