To my friend Nancy.Rest in peace my friend

To my dear friend,

I loved you so.

I didn’t know,

You were going to go.

You always had a smile

No matter how bad you were feeling,

You could cheer us up, even for a little while.

I’ll miss you my friend

More than you’ll ever know,

It was a such a shock you had to go.

You never forgot any one

Not even their birthdays.

I promise every time I go out on a sunny day,

I’ll remember again the sun you gave.

You are missed by so many

That loved you so

Why , why did you have to go???


This is my good bye,

Don’t know what else to do.

They say people touch others lives,

I never met anyone like you.

You made a difference in a lot of us

Such an honor to be you friend,

It was truly my honor to be yours,

I’m sorry it had to end.

Know my friend won’t forget you,

I’ll carry you in my heart

Cause you stayed my friend from the start.

When I think of Nancy I think of Gods creations. So I posted a couple for her.

We're only here for a time, and for some that time is shorter than ours. Why, we'll never know, but I know she's in a much better place now than she was in here. Nice poem, emotional!
