My dearest friend, who brought love and passion;
You saw beneath my mask to my dark heart.
While you lay and I caressed your soft hand
Your gentle whisper promised we’d not part.
My dearest friend, who brought light and pleasure;
Inside your eyes, I saw when we first met.
With each breath, I saw some of your light fade;
We sat silent and felt the bright sun set.
My dearest friend, who brought joy and laughter;
We said just one more day, one more good time.
Promised we’d dance again, that we would laugh;
But we knew we’d reached the end of our line.
My dearest friend, who brought thought and drama;
We knew this adventure wouldn’t be shared.
Our hearts unlocked so you could fly free;
But our souls will forever be paired.
My dearest friend, who brought strength and comfort;
God wanted you back and we had no choice.
We stared at the forked road in front of us;
Not this time, my dearest friend, came your voice.
