To the living I am gone.
To the sorrowful, I will never return.
To the angry, I was cheated.
But to the happy, I am at peace.
And to the faithful, I have never left.
I cannot speak, but I can listen.
I cannot be seen, but I can be heard.
So, as you stand upon a shore,
gazing at a beautiful sea
As you look in awe at a mighty forest
and its grand majesty
Remember me in your heart,
your thoughts and your memories
of the times we cried,
the times we fought,
the times we laughed
For if you always think of me,
I will never be gone from your side.
Time to tell my best friend goodbye. We had so much laughter when all 4 of us were together.. I will cherish all the times we had together. Our prayers to your family.
