Saying Goodbye

In memory of Frank Lee Lewis 1939-1999

Why did you have to go and die?
I don't want to have to say goodbye.
God must have thought you were special to take you away,
but couldn't he have waited for another day?
God's looking after you now,
High, high up in the sky.
Up there where all the angels lie.
You wouldn't have wanted me to make a fuss,
After all, you're still down here with all of us.
Just because I can't see you, doesn't mean you're not here.
I know you are somewhere very, very near.
I love you so much but it time to say:
Goodbye My Friend
Because your life here on earth has come to an end.
Rest in Peace, Popo

I had lost the most loving, caring and nicest friend in my life and it hurt and it still does when I think of him. He had always made my day a highlight. We would fight and we would attack each other but we always knew that we can never lose each other. He was the reason I am still living on earth now. I love you Jeremy and remember you will never be forgotten.

"You will always be a part of my life and my heart,
you are my heart and soul on this land now and forever more" <3
