Memories of a Dear Friend



Memories of a Dear Friend
Yesterday was your memorial
Everyone gathered
Both family and friends
To remember your life
We toasted you with port
And we remembered
Our dear friend, brother and uncle

Today I write
Through blurry eyes
About my memories of
Concerts, parties, hanging out
Man we had a blast
Then our lives took
Different paths
And we grew apart
Yet no matter what
You were always
Happy to see me
No matter the time
Between visits
You were truly
My friend

I know my grief
Will lessen with time
Yet I will always
Remember you my friend
May our Lord
Have mercy on your soul
And keep you safe
Until we meet again

May you
Rest in Peace
My dear friend
Jim
