A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. That's what they say, but what medicine do I take To make the pain of losing you go away? Maybe spend a day or two sharing my tears with Jim, Jack, Samuel, or Remy. Their strength may bring back memories of the past but soon They will be washed away leaving me a dark night I will not be privileged to remember. A spoonful of liquid sugar to help the pain go away Though the memories I want to keep close and hold dear For through memories I can once again Hold your hand as you comfort me and give me strength Or hear your voice as you encourage me to continue my life dreams and ambitions. I could hug you one more time and in the memory of that hug, I'll hold you close, tell you I love you and never let go. A spoonful to hold back cups, quarts, gallons of Memories, regret, pain, sadness Love. I found my medicine. A spoonful of the memories and happiness we shared to help the ache of losing you go away. And in that spoon that I shall set aside in dedication to you will be mor than love and joy You will be there always close and at last at peace
