Farewell my friends

It was beautiful
as long as it lasted
the journey of my life.

I have no regrets
whatsoever save
the pain I'll leave behind.

Those dear hearts
who love and care
and the heavy with sleep
ever moist eyes.
The smife, in spite of a
lump in the throat
and the strings pulling
at the heart and soul.

The strong arms
that held me up
when my oun strength
let me down.
Each morsel that I was
fed with was full of love divine.

At every turning of my life
I came across
good friends.
Friends who stood by me
even when the time raced by.

Farewell, Farewell
my friends.
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears,
for I need them not
All I need is your smile.

If you feel sad
think of me
for that's what I'd like.
When you live in the hearts
of those you love,
remember then....
you never die.
