Hello, old friend, I thought of you just the other day.
I thought about the walks we took. How we loved to play.
We had much respect and love for values we both shared.
A hug or pat upon the back, showed me that you cared.
You’d laugh with me and weep with me, accept every feeling
That my body would express and I would feel the healing
Of your love and gentleness when living hurt so bad.
When you had to leave one day, I Never felt so sad.
How can I show gratitude for all the time you took.
You made me want to reach the stars with just one look.
Save a place for me,old friend, when you get to heaven.
We’ll run through green fields again like we did age seven.
I’ll lay a flower on your grave and say a little prayer
That you’ll reserve a hug for me when I get up there.
