Eric -RIP-

Why did you leave? Oh companion of mine Why did you leave? Twas it really your time?  Did you see no point in staying another measly day?  By my side if you were oh the things I would say!  Judge you, I would not Tis not in my nature The emptiness I feel from your passing measures to that of a crater A bullet took your life One blast and it's through What pains me to know is the gun was held by you All you left behind was a note for family and friends Inscribed were many ' I love you's '  And your deep heartfelt amends No need to say sorry For you lived a full life I shall always remember this through the pain, struggles, and strife 'You don't know what you got until what you got is no more' Oh how this saying is true! As the tears stream my face and I reminisce of you With anger in our eyes and pain in our hearts We lay you to rest Hoping that solace will overflow in our lives We miss you Eric  This is in plain black and white Had we the power we'd wish you back to life I take comfort in knowing one day we'll meet again Beyond the pearly gates reunited  as friends This is NOT goodbye Only a brief farewell When shall we meet again? Only time will tell
