Goodbye to a Friend

Saying goodbye is never easy

Saying goodbye’s never easy,

Hello seems so far away,

Time will stand still,

In the moments,

When your memory

Plays through their day.


So many things to remember,

Your laughter, your joy,

And, your pain.

But they will remember you fondly,

Knowing you always would say,


“Don’t cry my loves,

I was with you,

In the morning, at noon, and at night.

In the moments we shared,

The times that we cared,

And even the little ole fights.


You can still have me there

In those moments,

The good ones,

The sad and,

The play.

Just remember to summon my angels,

So they can bring me your way.”


They are here with me now in the heavens.

They are there on your earth down below.

No matter the pain we are feeling,

One day all this will go.


That day we will run with amazement.

When we’re finally in the same place.

I’ll be the one that is waiting

With a radiant smiling face.


The joy that I have here is awesome

And although, I miss you the most.

I really must say, it’s quite nice here,

We have the most fabulous Host.


His name is not really mentioned

It’s called out in different ways.

No matter what we call Him,

His answer seems to remain.


"I will always protect you,

I have loved you all of your days.

So in your moments of waiting,

Within My hands, you will stay."


"So my loves when you're blue,

For the time, that lies in between,

Always remember I’m with you,

Even when I am not seen."


God Bless You All as you dream of your loved ones and remember they are close and always in your heart.

A dear friend say's goodbye to her BFF

Besties for a lifetime!
Besties for a lifetime!

Stairway to Heaven

HanLyn,

You are so brave after so much loss and still knowing the ones we love are always truly close. I know we will meet them again soon in our forever home. I am looking forward to that beautiful reunion as I am sure you are as well. Thank you for your comment and blessing to you always.

Your right it's never easy saying goodbye to a loved one and you never quite get over that loss. Mainly because that person is no longer with you in the physical world, so it's like there is something missing. But you are right that they are always with us. I know that about my parents and now my sister -in-law who died suddenly last November. They are still there and around us even if it's not quite the same any longer.

My deepest condolences. What a beautiful memorial to your friend. Your heart felt words speak out across time and space for many of us who have lost loved ones. Thank you again.

...This brought tears to my wife's eyes.
