Use To Be

We use to be so happy
We use to be inseparable
we use to be the best of friends
until the day It came to an end.

I sit and wonder
from day to day
what you would look like
If you were here today.

I sit here and look back
at the times we shared
you were so young
you didn't have a care.

You knew that you were dying
but didn't say a word
I wish that I could of been with you
when you said your final goodbye.

It broke my heart to lose you
my heart still aches with pain
for you didn't go alone that day
for part of me went with you
when God called you home that day.

Today, I found out my best friend had died. She too, had suffered from kidney failure. I love this poem, because it describes exactly what I feel. It is too the point. I hope the writer does not mind, but I plan to read this poem at her funeral this week. Thanks so much.
