Time to say goodbye
How do you say "Goodbye" to a friend
How do you realise her life had to end
What a huge gap you leave which will never be filled
Remembering your smile your manner so mild
I will remember you with fond memories, Castle wont be the same
Remembering our bingo jaunts a fortune to attain
The curb you put on my spending
Whilst waiting for bingo to begin *
"Now Seren"' you would say just £5 each to start
We wont bother with this and that
I used to laugh saying ok
sneaking another in when she looked away
The time i won seven hundred pounds was so funny you see
I just calmly pressed the claim button, she yelled like a banshee
Thinking it was maybe a hundred wasnt that impressed
Til i saw it was much more than i had ever guessed
Your with your folks now Betti you have missed them so,
We will all get through this with you watching us, I know.
Hwyl fawr Betti oeddech yn ffrind da, bydd yn methu ti
goodbye Betti you were a good friend, will miss you so.
*. Can play slot boards at Castle Bingo Hall whilst waiting for session to start.
Costs 50p -£1 a game.
Betti was same age as me, diagnosed, tumour on lung 10days before she died, Left it too late to get help.
