I Remember

I remember her laugh like it was yesterday It replaced the words we just couldn’t say. As the merry-go-round turned peacefully slow We tried to forget that soon she would go. We watched the clouds drift slowly by And tried to fight back the tears in our eye. The early evening was quiet and calm As the three of us together recited the twenty thirds psalm. Our voices broke at the end of the verse As an angel went by in a pure white hearse. The old merry-go-round continued to turn But it was only that moment we wanted to burn. Lying on our backs starring at the sky We were too afraid to ask God why. As the evening shadows continued to grow A gentle breeze began to blow. That’s the last memory I have of our friend Soon after God gave her wings to ascend. She’s been an angel for many years, She gives me the strength to face my fears. She watches over me by night and by day She is the warm light that guides my way. As long as I remember her laughter and her smile She’ll always be with me each step of every mile.
