Shine Bright by Marc Lemezma 

He was ours now released, bright star from the east

Smile bright, smile so warm, all our lives to transform

Passion, fire, heart of gold; never time to grow old

Giving love, gave all, no thought of self at all

Gone now, in your place, a life, time can’t erase

Passing time now requires, light the fuse and retire

Fly high, fly above; carry home peace and love

Bang flash brilliant sky, linger long in our eyes

Go now, go find peace; loving hands we release

Shine big, Shine bright; greatest firework in the night
