For an old, lost friend. May God welcome you, despite your obvious faults

I have not heard
so much as a word
for years
so why I thought
of you yesterday
I guess I'll never know.

I went about my day
thinking nothing of it,
until this morning
when I heard
the tragedy that had occurred.

You loved life,
until the end
when it just became too much.
You forgot that people
loved you
and it didn't matter
that She never did.
