Dear friend  you have left this plain
Never to be seen again and that means 

I cannot call in, Knock at your door,

unexpectedly, yet there  your welcoming smile

Inviting me to come in for lots of talk, for a while.

Much of it remembering days of the past,

how time has caught up and it all went too fast!

We talked of our children, who ran in the sun

Enjoying the freedom, enjoying the fun!


We talked of the times, now they are grown

and they have reached that same age
if only we had known,

They would read from the same page
Just as we when we met

at college when young

and our friendship  begun!


Dear friend take love forward, my love just for you

Your life will be missed, your energy too


Love you Cynthia x
