My friend of the past 37 years passed away last week and this is my tribute to my friend, Lily.

From my husband and my family
The release of pain has taken me away
I’ve left you all behind to carry on
As I join my daughter and her baby
Both of whom were taken too early.

You have to continue on without me
I know you are feeling angry
Sad and grieving, your hearts are breaking
I want you to know it was not of my making
Time to heal and time for praying

I couldn’t stay for another day
So I slipped peacefully away
Without a fuss, no bright lights
I quietly left to start my new venture
Although not with my life-long partner

Remember me as I remember you
Loving hearts and memories hard to bear
The fun and laughter that we all share
Wipe away the traces of your tears
And think of all our happy years.

As the time moves and the grating, aching pain
Changes from sharp shock into a more mellow domain
Here in heaven protected by the angels
I’ll be watching and loving you all from afar
Sprinkling you all with love from my star
