Until I See You Again
I stood in front of your family and your friends as I started to speak,
Hoping to make it through without showing that inside I was just so weak.
I tried to do you justice, to have your memory shine,
As I looked out at your precious little girls, a chill ran up my spine.
My insides trembled and my voice started to crack,
Knowing the love of their mom no one could ever give back.
Your husband tried to smile at me from his seat in the front pew,
He was trying to tell me that it was okay to say good-bye to you.
His arms will never again have you to hold though thatís where you took your last breath,
I see him as your complete strength, even in death.
The tears I cry are selfish, the sorrow I feel is for me,
For I could wish nothing more than for you to be set free.
No more pain, no more sorrow; you are finally at rest,
For the time I had you in my life, I feel completely blessed.
As I talked about the friend you were my eyes rest on your mom and your dad,
The sadness sets deeper for they are burying the youngest child they had.
I ran my hand along your casket as I headed back to my seat,
Trying to hold onto the fact that we will again, someday, meet.
At the cemetery, everyone gathered all around,
As we silently said a prayer for you at your final resting ground
I couldnít stop the tears and the pain seemed to expand as each one fell,
Walking up to the casket, a white rose I grasped, as I said one last and final farewell.
I turn and walk away leaving behind a friend like no other,
You were a wonderful daughter, friend, wife and a tremendous mother.
I told you that youíd always be apart of me, that will remain true,
For I would be less of a person had I not known you.
So as the time slips by and I try to except that youíre really gone,
I promise to help your memory forever live on.
Thank you for being you, blob and letting me be me,
Iíll meet you at the pearly gates, when itís my time to be set free...
