Faded Friendship

Written by: Ed Ebbs

You made me smile and knew my thoughts
Words need not to be spoken for they were caught.

We listened to each other very carefully
We hung on each and every thought prayerfully.

We shared laughter and tears--those were real
Summoning up a special bond that gave us zeal.

Life's drama unfolded when this bond was broken,
Sadly, oh so sadly we drifted apart unspoken.

My wishes for you are in those dreams you dream.
May you endure your troubles and go upstream.

My prayers for you are your happiness,
to have enough to keep your sappiness.

I will always be your friend until the end.
Always a smile for you...
