Saying Goodbye

© Melissa A. Lewis
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?
Godís 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 youíre 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
