Susie is the first friend I made when I moved to Colorado and left everything and everyone I knew behind. What a friend she is!


As Long As I’m Alive!


 


When I was low and all alone,


I knew I could go and pick up a phone.


You were always there with some cheerful remark.


That left me smiling deep in my heart.


 


We drove me to the airport quite a few times.


You knew I'd get lost and end up in Pines.


You never complained or balked when I asked.


And always made it seem such an easy task.


 


When I was so ill and lying down.


You never left my side, you were always around.


The day you married Charlie and I stood by,


I felt such happiness that I thought I could fly.


 


Your vows were spoken and I was so glad,


You’re like the sister that I never had.


We've had bad times but good times as well.


You just have to know that I think you're swell.


 


I took the letters of your first name,


To tell you so in a little game.


 


S - IS FOR THE SUNSHINE YOU BROUGHT INTO MY LIFE.


U- IS FOR THE UNSELFISH WAY YOU TAKE ME IN YOUR STRIFE.


S - IS FOR THE SORROW THAT WE BOTH HAVE SHARED.


I -  IS FOR IMPOSSIBLE TO LIVE WITHOUT A PERSON WHO TRULY CARED.


E - IS FOR ETERNITY THAT OUR FRIENDSHIP WILL SURVIVE.


 


AND NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN AS LONG AS I'M ALIVE!


 


For Susie, my first friend in Colorado
