Our Friend Who's Gone Away

We really didn't have her long - Our friend whose gone away.

And if things could be different I confess I'd have her stay

With us and bless us with her friendship and her smile,

She grew so very dear to us in such a little while.

Now we all are lonesome - Each heart has an empty space-

That wants to feel her hand again and see her smiling face -

And hear her speak so gently, and just be with us each day.

We miss her and we're grieving for - Our Friend whose gone away.

But I am very thankful -There is peace within my soul -

For I know she's with Jesus - I know He has made her whole.

And I know too I'll see her when He calls me from this place,

And when I go to live with Him - I know I'll see her face.

So as I write these words and I remember our Dear Friend.

I am thankful that He loaned her to us at the very end.

How precious are His thoughts toward us -

How wondrous are His ways -

He sent us such a lovely soul to bless and fill our days.

We lost a very dear friend yesterday. Linda and I have been friends since 1970. This has been a very hard and sad day for me. She was only 64 years old. Now you can understand why I tell you all how much “I love you“. Tomorrow may be to late.
