The time soon comes for parting,
And our time is at an end.
The rest of our life is starting
But have no time at all to spend.
I knew one day I have to go,
But thought I have more time.
I can't reverse time's one-way flow,
But at least I will have this rhyme.
We had our shining moments,
Upon this life's darkened stage,
And in my book of wonderments
It will never be just another page.
Like the exploding of a star,
You've changed me in and out.
Your light will travel with me far,
Past when all other lights go out
I am such a lucky soul
To have friends as good as you
'Cause when worries find their way to me
And I'm unsure what to do...
I just think of you and remember
Something you said or a story you told.
It makes me laugh and gives me joy
That you should be so bold.
You've taught me many things
That I did not know before
Brought clarity, enlightenment,
That I must thank you for.
Your kindness is revered,
And this I have no doubt;
That we'll be friends eternally
And that I cannot live without...
I admire you and that is why
For now it's hard to part,
But it won't be long that I'll be gone
And you'll be in my heart
