I had a friend ,, from long ago 
We were only young you know
She was my best friend
At least that's what I thought
We did everything together
I liked her a lot !

But then one day
I had to leave for school 
Though I wish I did not
Cause I missed her a lot
Then one day I came home 
When  I  called out to for her 
She did not answer  me
I looked for her high & low!  

But then I heard one day
From the TV news man
That she had met 3 bad men
And they took her away 
She is with the angels  now
For it could not  be any other way
And I know she waits for me 
Cause she was always that way !!!

I moved away from home, age 16, up to Oregon to get my degree in child psychology & teaching, come home at 18. had a dream that Sandy and I went to a house party "both of us age 18" then she went into another room with 3 men. So I stood there & knocked forever on the door. Sandy never came out.   This is a TRUE dream ! And yes this ( her missing) was on the news . Two brothers and a cousin killed her.

    hmm, I am confused now. I am seeing a comment you made to Debs, and sounds like this was really true. But at the bottom of your story, it says it was just a dream? did she disappear or is it fiction?

    No doubt you are correct in that assumption, Debbie. Death does not seperate friends... just puts off the meeting for a spark of time in the eternal order of things. nice tribute to your friend.

    God, that is a tough ticket to punch! Wow! You have great faith and I admire you for it. I know that your friend does , too! i am glad that youliked my poem.
