I lost a friend today,

I lost a friend today

I lost a friend today,

Her life was filled with heartache along the way,

But today she left us,

She left us to look at her face in scrapbooks covered in dust.

I lost my friend,

For a happy end,

Where pain is non-existent and love is all there is,

A place she dreamed about in each kiss.

Morgan is left to raise the girls now,

He is left to watch them learn to speak and walk and ask how,

He will watch them from Earth and she will watch from above,

With love.

Bekah and Tracie never saw her in that dress,

They never wore their wedding best,

They never saw their mommy walk down the aisle in white with her hair in curls,

They never saw the beautiful veil unfurl.

Bella will never know the voice,

The voice with soothed her in the night and called her Royce,

Royce, the name she used so lovingly,

The name used so comfortingly.

Seventeen,

She was only seventeen,

So close to her birthday,

She could have almost said, "I'm eighteen! I did it! I'm okay!"

I lost a friend today,

Her life was filled with heartache along the way,

But today she left us,

She left us to look at her face in scrapbooks covered in dust.
