Waste No Time

We were friends for years Then you alarmingly disappeared With no notice, no warning To my heart, it's jarring It's pierced my inner core I won't be seeing you anymore We always planned to have that drink And carry on about the good ole days I know you're in a better place I don't know why we stayed away When we were kindred spirits from the start It wasn't about the drink or my boozing It was fear that you wouldn't deem me amusing Reflecting after learning you're gone, we would have picked up right where we left off. Make time for those who count If the love was there at the onset, there will never be a doubt Make sure those who occupy your heart Know they're eternally loved Before they're suddenly gone And you are hollow, empty, vacant Lamenting their loss Make time for that drink Don't sleep on it Stew over it Think you're not worthy Or they no longer value you Let that sink in Treasure those near and dear, my friends For the Lord's gonna call them home one day And you can't pinpoint the time when you'll see them again
