Goodbye Old Friend

Old friend, how could you have slipped away
As shadows faded at dawn of day
And I blissfully unaware
In slumber lay?

When last we met and shared some wine
Laughed together, feeling fine
How could we not know
It was our last?

We talked of this and some of that
Remembered school friends while we sat
Never dreaming for a moment
We would part

We reminisced of days gone by
How the years seem to fly
All the while not knowing 
You would die

Now I stand alone to grieve
Not believing you would leave
Without first telling me 

As you ascend up in the sky
To your Home in Heaven on high
Remember I loved you
And reserve a room for me!
