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
