Billings, MT USA
I could whisper one thousand prayers
I could search lost shadows of souls
I could join a symphony and love all the music in it,
but I could never find another friend like you...
When you leave this sordid place,
life will go on, I know.
But my tears will fall, my heart will rust,
it's beat will slow.
I will fall asleep at night thinking of you, of the memories we've made, the laughs we've shared, and all the sad times too.
I don't want you to leave me, though selfish I cannot be.
I want you to go after your dreams; go out on your own, though you'll be
taking part of me.
Please don't let the distance separate us.
Phone me with every bit of news.
Tell me about your hair-cut or your brand new pair of shoes.
And I want letters with the details, and
photographs as well.
There's much time before you leave, I know,
but I felt I had to tell...
You see, time passes us so quickly.
And I just wanted you to know
that I won't take the time we have for granted-
I will cherish every moment...
Until it's time for you to go.
