Farewell to a friend

Everything is forever over
Whenever you are ready
I’ve been on your side
My God, I've liked knowing you

Now I'll stay here, you go there
And there is not so far from here
We agree, I do not know where
and there, we will meet

Without you, the clock is ticking as quickly
But times do change
So I say goodbye, you must go now
Know that in my heart you will always live on

Sleep tight, you've earned it
You fought till your last breath
And go, go now my friend
And dream forever relieved

Just like before you'll make your way
I know you will find a home real soon
And I repeat what you've told me once
In my heart, I remain faithful to you

Without you, the clock is ticking quickly
But times do change
So I say goodbye, you must now go
Know that in my heart you will always live on

    Close your eyes and listen to your heart. The way she lives in your heart, you have lived in her's too.

    A writer of all, a master of none but...I know when I read a poem if I have enjoyed it. Now I have read yours and I have indeed enjoyed it Erik. I wish you a wonderful weekend and hope you find much inspiration to continue with your writing endeavors. Love, Carol
