Before I Went

In Memory Of...

Before I went, I thought of you,

And what you mean to me.

I thought of all the things I'd miss,

The happy times, you see.

We shared memories, good and bad,

And when I wanted to hide,

You helped me fight the woes of life.

For you, I have much pride.

Please don't think I've left you,

To fight hardships on your own,

Because inside you heart,

A part of me has a home.

So feast in all good memories.

Let laughter soothe the pain.

I am still here with you,

Though the facts remain the same.

I want you to know I admire you,

Your strength, and wonderful ways.

And I want you to know I thought of you,

Before I went away.
