With this there will be some closure,
For a friendship that is no more,
I need to say what's in my heart
Before I close this door.
Life is short, this we know,
In an instant we could be gone,
And I want you to know what you meant to me
Before tomorrow's new dawn.
I guess I often burdened you
With troubles that were mine
And now it seems, too many times,
I crossed over your undrawn line.
Best of friends for many years,
Now I must somehow mourn this loss,
I knew it wouldn't be easy,
But I knew not, how high the cost.
And for all the tomorrows that we won't share
For the burdens we'll each bear alone
Please know that I'll care about you
Until the day God calls me back home.
I will cherish every memory...
Let go of what's caused this pain
And pray for peace and happiness
To come into your life again.
I've searched so long for answers
Seems there's nothing left to do
Except this hardest, final thing
And at last, let go of you.

I know how hard it is to let go of your best friend. I've had to do it before.  So this touched me close to my heart.

Hi Bonnie,

Your letting go was done so very beautifully, if we could all let things end like this the world would be such a better place to dwell. Enjoyed very much.
