Goodbye Old Friend - Poem by jJO CAREY

Goodbye old friend, its hard to know your're gone
Its hard to say good bye and know I'll never see you again
Never laugh and have fun
And dream our dreams of life

Goodbye old friend, I wish that I were with you
So many more friends dead than alive
We wonder why life turned this way
We wonder why time took all our hopes away

And left us lonely here on earthh
To have nothing to look forward to
We didn't really much that much
We tried, but it didn't work

Goodbye old friend and all the others
That have gone before
I pray God has a special place for you
In that golden home of yours

I wish for hope, but I can find none
I sit here alone and wait
For that time when I will go too
Until than old friend, goodbye
