There Where You Are - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

There where you are
Where the angels live
you are free
Free from the pain that held you captive
Free from watching helpless
as your loved ones mourned
Knowing the time was close
To bid you farewell
Free to live in peace
Your journey was hard to watch
Helplessly waiting
My hands shaking
as the sands of time ran out
You were there,
but it wasn't you anymore
Just a whisper, a shadow
of the woman you were before
Who knows what you were thinking?
I watched you wither away
A friend for life you were
A lady
Immaculately dressed
Always a kind word
An outstretched hand
to lift me up when I had fallen
You will be missed
My memories will never fade
Your face engraved in my soul
And one day when I too leave this earth
we shall meet again
My friend
Until that day falls upon me
While seasons change
And years fly away
I will speak of you fondly
For your friendship was
sincere and true
And while I'm still here
I will remember you
