As your light fades away,
Blue skies turn grey,
Sun is gone, wind is crying,
Birds are flying, looking somewhere to shine in,
Muddy paths, memories turn into ash,
This present day, I still feel your pain,
But when the rain settles, it will grow beautiful meadows,
Wind is singing, sun is shining,
Clouds hidden within the lightning,
Love, light, energy, thank you for visiting me.
Rebirth, growth, change, thank you Ryan for this pain.
A new petal bloomed, making room for something a new.
Wherever I go, I'll let your wind be my flow.
Take me through all yours highs, and take me through all your lows.
Because once the rain settles, I'll be finally able to let this pain go.
My heart my love ❤️ Ryan God bless you on your journey 🙏
Ryan was always fun to be around. His smile was contagious and he always looked out for his friends. May his good memories bring comfort.
Sending my deepest condolences and prayers to Ryan’s loved ones.
I watched close by growing up while ryan m older brother andre and phil were friends so close and always so cool. I loved seeing them and others together and I was always so grateful that they didnt treat me like an annoying younger brother. As we grew older i assumed things would change but it didnt. After years of not speaking and time apart I would see ryan and phil from time to time. Each time there was huge hand shakes and stories. I've always felt like ryan was kinder than some may think and the kindness he would show me even after not speaking for long length of time proves it.
So proud and honored to have know him. Thank you Ryan
