For Lizzie

May 14, 2012

Infectious smile, sparkling eyes

Making so many laugh, time after time

Witty humour, much to say

Who could imagine you’d be gone today

In one small second a life can change

I hope you didn’t feel any pain

Full of life and then it’s gone

Leaving so many behind to mourn

Because everyone loved you, that they did

You touched so many with the life you lived

Of you I never heard a bad word spoken

And now so many hearts are broken

Thinking about what you’ll miss

So many nights out, the boys to kiss

One day you would’ve walked down the aisle

And raised children who’d have had your smile

So as we live on but you’re gone

The guilt can make us feel so torn

But Lizzie would’ve wanted us to live

As she would’ve, with love to give

And not wanted us to waste a single day

To make the most of it in every way

And till that day we meet again

I hope you know we love you, friend
