Goodbye, Old Friend...
Looking back on days gone by,
I think of my dear friend,
and how the days just slipped away...
we thought they'd never end.
Yet the time has come to say goodbye,
for just a little while...
and in the days and weeks ahead,
I'll think of her and smile.
Thank You, God, for times we shared,
for all the memories...
the endless laughs and heartfelt tears
forevermore to cease.
Yet in my heart I feel at peace,
just knowing she's with You...
as morning came, she saw Your face,
and her suffering was through.
You called her Home to be with You,
releasing her from pain...
just tell my friend that in a while,
I'll be seeing her again.
(In rememberance of Pauline, my best friend for much of my adult life. She passed away in 1995 of
Lateral Sclerosis, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's Disease and I still miss her so very much.)
She was truly the wind beneath my wings.
