You were a bright light and going on what your mum says, a bright character. Sleep well xx"

Are you laughing at that, my wee rascal?Miss you more than any words on earth can say but you know that you see me cry everyday, sorry for that but I can't help it I love you more than life itself xxx <3
One year since you have gone and died
They ejected you from that dim lit place
And since that night we have all cried
Because never again will we see your face
You were then walked out to your taxi
What happened were you then put out?
You were so young, hale and hearty
Of that, we absolutely have no doubt
You walked and jogged along the way
We know, as a passer-bye say they saw you
Then the dairy workers turned you away
Disorientated, cut and wet right through
You didn't have a clue where you were
You walked and ran without a plan
Headlights caught you in their bright glare
That dam taxi had room for one more man
But the taxi didn't stop and pick you up
So you staggered around totally lost
Tell me, is this world really so corrupt?
Really, was this just due to drink and frost?
Others and I don’t think so my lovely son
For you walked, ran and climbed so far
But its only murder with a smoking gun
Did you aim to touch a lonely star?
Why oh why did you go so high?
Experts said path of least resistance
That’s where they say you would die
Yet you covered such a mighty distance
You went all uphill, windy and rough terrain
Well over the distance experts guessed
So now we will never, ever see you again
Because they say you weren't well dressed
Yet you were truly lost long before
The cold, yes it got you in the end
Yet now we wonder, what’s the score?
Did GHB on this long journey send?
Did someone slip it into your drink?
We know you wouldn't take GHB
So this is the scenario we all think
Except the experts, who refuse to see
Could spiking be a possibility?
Read the timeline what do you see?
Murder screams out loud to me!
Could it be drink, cold and GHB?"
"love from ryan xxx"
