This is for my friend who has recently passed, in her cherished memory.
|To you my friend, till the end.
I'll always remember your laugh and splendor.
You were kind and thoughtful in the darkest days.
Your helped me through with all your ways.
Now it's my turn to remember you.
You've fallen in a horrid way
one of these days, I'll make him pay.
This I promise you.
He was a friend,
all drunk and rude.
Took your breath and very life
that dark street and starry night.
I wish you rest and happiness.
For in death we find a meaning behind life.
Your absence makes me think of my own existence
and through this, you help me once again.
I'll say once more, till the end.
Your end has arrived, but for now
I'm still alive.
