Good By My Friend

Where has time gone?
I wish I knew.
The years are very few.

There is just too much to do.
Time can't efface the past.
I hope the hurt won't last.

Words remain locked in me.
I want to stop your suffering,
But time is pending.

The cancer is taking over you.
I can see right into your eyes.
Your cry is not a lie.

My thoughts are for you only.
Please I want you to be alright
But all there is; is time.

There is never enough space.
Send me back to another life.
I want your flame to show grace.

I'm tending you,
Is It the last moment?
Time is important.

My wishing won't come true.
The cancer has reached an end.
Good by my friend.

Your suffering is now over.
My tears tell the story.
I am just so sorry.

The glowing light will guide you.
The angels will give you a new life.
I will see you again when it is my time.

I share this moment my friend. A dear one passed a few years ago of cancer. Once so vibrant, she just simply faded away. I appreciate your thoughts!
Good-bye is one of the saddest words in the English language. But you were there for the one you held so dear And it does get better farther on. Beautiful poem. Prayers for you. Warmest regards, Sandra
