Dear Old Friend

Can you hear these words?

I pray you find comfort

I pray it no longer hurts

Your sister speaks highly of you

And your mother does too

Your father's voice cracks

When he says how much he loves you

Dear Old Friend

It's been quite some time

I wished I reached out to sooner

But I threw life a bait and waited for something to bite the line

Dearest Friend

I saved your voice

Dearest Friend

I wish you knew you had a choice

Dear Old Friend

Can you hear these words?

Dear Old Friend

I wish I saw you sooner before you left this world

You were beautiful and didn't know that

A clean mirror with just a few cracks

Your love made up for what you thought you lacked

Too good for this world, God wanted you back

Dear Old Friend

It's been quite some time

I wished I reached out to sooner

But I threw life a bait and waited for something to bite the line

Dearest Friend

I saved your voice

Dearest Friend

I wish you knew you had a choice

Dear Old Friend

Can you hear these words?

Dear Old Friend

I wish I saw you sooner before you left this world

Dearest Friend

I miss your voice

I wish I knew I had a choice

Dear Old Friend

It's been quite some time

I wished I reached out to sooner

But I threw life a bait and waited for something to bite the line

Dearest Friend

I saved your voice

Dearest Friend

I wish you knew you had a choice

Dear Old Friend

Can you hear these words?

Dear Old Friend

I wish I saw you sooner before you left this world
