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
