Later, My Friend
Tonight we had dinner with a sweet dear friend.
Yet tonight this parting has brought a precious era to an end.
She parts for Michigan and I wonder if I shall ever see her again?
This is dedicated to Allene, she will forever be in my heart, to me a dear friend .
She was there for me when my Leah died;
We held each other while my heart and soul cried.
Death in those days came close to my weeping hearts sleeping door.
Yet I felt her warmth; her comfort that touched my hearts very core.
Will I miss her: Yes that is true ,
for her love for me was and is pure and true .
How pray tell will I make these coming days:
The absence of a true friend that loved me.
I wish her well on her journey into a future yet unseen,
I pray for her safety.
For only God knows what she has meant to me…
This is for you Allene, my dearest friend, may this parting day not be the end.
