PRIEST: People come to the church in times like these for answers. But I have none...most words fall empty, but I'll try. It is a horrible thing that no one should have to go through, losing a friend at such a young age. You know, or you should know, that he is in a better place. We'll always ask ourselves if there was something more that could have been done...that's natural.
PETER: Do you ask yourself that, Father?
He went to you for guidance, you hid behind a screen
Knowing how much empathy might mean
Do you know how much he loved? Did you know how much he cared?
Lost in the teaching was a boy, so all alone and scared
Father, we were so in love! and that's what I find so odd
Our love was pure and nothing else brought me closer to God
PRIEST: I'm sorry, Peter.
PETER: And I forgive you, Father.
