Fly True

by Alex Clarke
11 months today. I was going through my son’s computer and I found this song that he wrote for his IB music class his senior year a few months after his dad’s death.   Because of the depth of feeling that he had for dad, he was never satisfied with the music and would rarely play it. However, I think that the lyrics express the feelings of his heart.


I wish you could see me now.
I’d fly true if I could just see how.
How long will it take before I break?
And I know that I will see you again.
How long can I wait without my best friend?

I’ll never break
I’ll never fall
‘cause life isn’t that long
‘cause I can’t see you even if I try,
And I will miss you even until I die.

I know you can see me now
I’d fly true ‘cause I can see just how
