Remembering Zach

Just this week, I saw this video about Zach Sobiech, what an inspiration he was.  I say was, because he died on Monday, May 20th.  Get to know Zach here.

Here's the song he wrote, Clouds. 


There are no guarantees in life, but look what you can accomplish when you set your mind to it.  Zach, what a beautiful gift you left, not just for your family and friends, but to people who never got the chance to meet you.


God bless you, Zach, and may He comfort your family and friends until it's time for them/us to go up, up, up.


Clouds
Well I fell down, down, down
Into this dark and lonely hole
There was no one there to care about me anymore
And I needed a way to climb and grab a hold of the edge
You were sitting there holding a rope

And we’ll go up, up, up
But I’ll fly a little higher
We’ll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won’t be long now, it won’t be long now

When I get back on land
Well I’ll never get my chance
Be ready to live and it’ll be ripped right out of my hands
Maybe someday we’ll take a little ride
We’ll go up, up, up and everything will be just fine

And we’ll go up, up, up
But I’ll fly a little higher
We’ll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear

It won’t be long now, it won’t be long now
If only I had a little bit more time
If only I had a little bit more time with you

We could go up, up, up
And take that little ride
And sit there holding hands
And everything would be just right
And maybe someday I’ll see you again
We’ll float up in the clouds and we’ll never see the end

And we’ll go up, up, up
But I’ll fly a little higher
We’ll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer
Up here my dear
It won’t be long now, it won’t be long now
