Goodbye My Friend Zake
By Jeb Bensing
When a star is born an old one will die.
It’s always hard to say good-bye.
They fill your soul with love,
You laugh and play,
Roll on the rug.
Cuddle and Kiss,
Share many days with wonderful hugs.
Never able to remove the thoughts from your mind.
They were able to leave an impression for all time.
The faint thought will linger for a while,
You will begin to take solace with an obvious fact –
Your friend will be just fine.
You become accustomed to their presence,
The perpetual support,
When it is gone,
The mind becomes bewildered,
The heart is then defenseless.
Now it is time to regain your bearing,
Have faith in yourself,
Always listen to that lingering,
Ever potent understanding -
Love and faith are unwavering.
Their feelings will never be deterred.
Always standing on the outside looking in,
As long as you think about them time and again.
You will still meet in Heaven.
Always say goodbye,
The Soul is ever-lasting,
Love keeps the courage going and to –
