Someone I Use to Know

Someone I use to know Seems so long ago In time drifted away Taking separate ways Conversations for hours Time to call ours Hoping never to end More than a friend Words spoken sweet Moments we meet A song to remind What time left behind Life became busy Days passing quickly Time gradually to heal All the heart feels Passing on the street A small nod and greet Not what we were then Strangers once again Sad news was shared Life is so unfair Sickness has taken a toll A heart of pure gold Visited by the angel of the Lord Life to be no more Another sunrise never to see Heaven, past the sunset to be Never to forget Nor have regret Having one in my life Who made me feel alive How I hope it is known To me all that was shown Memories, forever to hold My heart, never to let go Written by: Donetta Harless Thursday, August 19, 2016

Very beautiful heartfelt words, touched me, as I recently lost two friends to cancer. Yes we will never forget the moments they made us feel alive. Thank you for posting this gem. Maybe you would like my cancers cost poem.
