How can I say good-bye to my dearest friend?
How can I let go of the only joy to my life?
Oh dearest friend, I know you don't want me to be sad,
but I just cannot help it.
I miss you too much.
Yet deep inside I know that you haven't really left.
For I feel you all around me, dearest friend.
You are in the softest breeze that caresses my cheek,
and it the warm sunshine of the day,
and even in the moonlight that comes in through my window at night.
When I walk outside I see your smiling face in the flowers,
Flowers that you loved.
In a deep way, you are everywhere around me.
You are everywhere that represents life.
Your memory resides in me,
where it will never die.
I promise you sweetest friend, it will always be as though you were here.
