In Memory of My Friend

My heart is broken

For my friend is gone!

 No more words will be spoken

No more visits to see


The days will be lonely

No matter what may be

We have beautiful memories

That will always be here


No one can take them away

They will always keep you near

 Several years spent together

 Sharing our children and lives


Visiting, laughing, or troubles

Didn’t matter, together we cried

 Years passed, and then we moved away

Our friendship never ended, it was there to stay


Not seeing each other as the months went by

Time wasn’t measured; it was like only a day

Calling or visiting every chance we got

Keeping each other up on our family lives


We will make it through, as time moves on

Even though it is hard to say our goodbyes

You’re in Heaven with God

No more troubles to bear


In that wonderful land

With not even a care

When our time comes

We will meet you some day

We know you will be waiting

When God calls us your way
