I Lost A Friend - Poem by jJO CAREY

I lost a friend yesterday, its still so hard to believe
We went thru so much together and cared so much
And although she moved away and carried on her life
I still remember her as if it was yesterday

Double dating, exchanging clothes
Talking on the phone for hours
Funny how all the memories come flying back
And I still see her as she was then

Fun and laughter, tears together for lost loves
Sharing every secret in our hearts
And riding around in her convertible or mine
Nothing too daring to do

We went to the beach one week after she graduated
Boy did we have fun and memories to share
When we came home and back to real life
But it was still great

I stood beside her as she married as her maid of honer
And she beside of me
Neither one worked out too well
But life moved on and we drifted in different directions

But I can't think of that, I only must think of the good times
She and I and other girls, always a team together
Leaving the real world far behind
Record hops, so so many double dates

But I cry, I cry because we became old
Our children all grown up
And our not staying in touch
We should have, but we didn't

And now I cry because they lay her in the ground
And she is young again in heaven
Having all the fun we used to have
But miss her I do and always will

She was one of the best, always one of the best
Friends I ever could have had
And sharing her life and all we did
And now I will see her no more

I'm sad because of that because of so many things
I should have done and said to her
While she was here, maybe she know
I pray she knows I love her and miss her and she was part of my life.
A wonderful part! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Dedicated to Mary Francis Karicofe DePriest
Frankie, Frankie, Frankie I love you @ will miss you.
