|memories of a friend
By Shadows on 02/02/2007
How often we take things for granted,
how short life is, is one of them,
and how friendship is such a gem.
As memories over flow, memories of a friend
within my heart, in my soul, memories that never end.
I walk by places we used to always meet,
I walk down the now lonely vacant street.
I can see the moments, the fun and laughter.
Remembering times down by the creek in the heat,
or up on that stage, where we'ld sit under the spot lights,
shining of the moon, on us, during many starry nights.
Those moments gone too soon.
As death I feel surrouds me, I know in my heart you'll be,
as your light still wont fade, not even after a decade.
Whispers of laughter in the wind,
embraces my sorrow, and fills within,
to keep my heart going strong.
I feel you here, in the esscence of all,
in what the eye wont see, large and small.
I hear you softly in a tune of a song.
I know you can hear me and that your near,
just no longer can I see, you standing next to me,
and that smile, that shined through,
and touched everyone you ever knew.
A smile i'll forever miss, but so precious to my mind,
for love and friendship is a memory I can always find.
As a friend you where so true, so tragic to loose you.
I have cried all the tears and overcome all the fears,
in my heart I know, your love will always glow.
I hear it in every sound, in my memories it can be found.
So I wait for the day when I see your face once more,
and we'll talk and laugh as we did before,
in that place of light, where we shall shine bright.
Is where we'll meet again, i'll wait til that day,
when the light comes down from the sky, the day I die,
until then, know my thoughts of you shall never end.
I cherish my memories of you, forever, my dear friend.
