|There are times when you are simply lost for words...|
They asked grand words and phrases of me They wanted eulogies and high poetry But I am struck dumb Rhyme deserts me And the rhythm is gone You are gone And try as I might I can't push the words out I know that through the years the thought of you will summon tears Like the smell of grass carried softly by the breeze You are gone from me And I have no words So I stand here with tears But with smiles as well But no fine words to end Other than these: 'you were a true friend.'
