For Heather

My best friend of nearly 25 years lost her dear "Bagaw" Sunday evening. My heart goes out to her. I hurt so much for her, I haven't lost any grandparents myself, but to think that we are only 30 years old my best friend just lost hers is terrifying. I hope that in this poem she might find peace for a moment. I love you with all my heart Heather!!! I am so sorry for your loss, call me anytime day or night no matter what you need, if only someone to listen I am always here, if you need my shoulder my van is always parked right outside.

. . . REMEMBER ME . . .
I never meant to leave you,
Could I have only stayed;
We would be going on in life,
With all the plans we made.
Now all the hopes and dreams we shared,
Are but sweet memories;
For you to tuck inside your heart,
Now when you remember me.
Remember all the good times,
And all the joy we shared;
Remember how you touched my life,
And how I really cared.
Think back on all the laughter,
And wipe away your tears;
You still have many miles to go,
And still have many years.
Don't look back....look forward,
This day is a brand new start;
And as you travel on in life,
You'll take a bit of my heart.
I never meant to leave you,
But still you'll not be alone;
For as long as my love lives in you,
I'll never really be gone.
