Tomorrow would have been her birthday

But she passed on yesterday

And the flowers I would place on her bed

I have laid them on her grave.

 

I would be sitting around a fire with her

Serenading the children we’d have parented

But the songs she had written

She sings with angels at Heaven’s gate.

(For a friend I said goodbye to too soon)
