You came to me

When I needed you

The most

My loving friend

A long lost hope

You helped me

With things

That I had feared

You gave me a voice

And an ear to hear

I loved you deeply

You were my closest friend

I will miss you dearly

Until we meet

Beautiful. I just love it - it tells a story but leaves me meandering in thought.
