Today I lost a friend,
And I never said goodbye.
No words will ever speak again,
We will never meet eye to eye.
So fleeting was our friendship,
Only a summer did it last.
Yet I felt I knew her all my life,
We grew close so fast.
I worry about her every day,
How will her life turn out?
But she will thrive without me there,
Of that, I have no doubt.
Her past was full of hardship,
She struggled against her mind.
I tried to keep her on the path,
Hoping a better life she would find.
Today I lost a friend.
We both did not want it to end.
But things have come between us,
And we will never meet again....
