A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss. Ah yes, these I too will miss. Be not burdened...deep with sorrow, I wish you sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I've savored mush: Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don't lengthen it now with your grief.
