Time to say goodbye

How do you say "Goodbye" to a friend
How do you realise her life had to end

What a huge gap you leave which will never be filled
Remembering your smile your manner so mild

I will remember you with fond memories, Castle wont be the same
Remembering our bingo jaunts a fortune to attain

The curb you put on my spending
Whilst waiting  for bingo to begin *

"Now Seren"'  you would say just £5 each to start
We wont bother with this and  that  

I used to laugh saying ok 
sneaking another in when she looked away

The time i won seven hundred pounds was so funny you see
I just calmly pressed the claim button, she yelled like a banshee

Thinking it was maybe a hundred wasnt that impressed
Til i saw it was much more than i had ever guessed

Your with your folks now Betti you have missed them so,
We will all get through this with  you watching us, I know.

Hwyl fawr Betti oeddech yn ffrind da, bydd yn methu  ti
goodbye Betti you were a good friend, will miss you so.

*. Can play slot boards at Castle Bingo Hall whilst waiting for session to start.

Costs 50p -£1 a game.

Betti was same age as me, diagnosed, tumour on lung 10days before she died, Left it too late to get help.  

Funeral today at 12.30

    Some goodbyes are harder than others, and unfortunately you've said some of the hardest. I really don't know what to say except that I'm still here as a friend whenever you need it. The poem is nice, but as always I hate to say that knowing the subject matter.
