My Funeral Song For You

My Funeral Song For You

A Poem by James
"

I lost a dear friend yesterday. She gave in to her demons and left a void in the world that can never be filled.

"
This life is pretty hard when you go at it alone
but alone is how we came here and alone is how we'll go.

A friend is a friend forever no matter where we are
the miles that came between us really aren't that far.

Now here I sit by myself just thinking through the years.
Time has been my real crime and it's time that brings the tears.

Tonight I'll share a memory, it's been a long time since I thought
about the girl in Alabama years ago who stole my heart.

Here's to you my sweet Virginia Ann, the first girl I ever loved
You're singing with the angels now looking down from up above.

I didn't have to time to tell you, I thought you always knew
Now all I have to offer is this funeral song for you.

You went off to college and I went off to war
with a picture of a pretty girl standing in her mamma's door.

It's been twenty-five years today, since we said goodbye
yesterday you left me a little emptier inside.

There's a time for love and laughter and a time to pray and mourn 
There never is enough time for the ones that we adore.

If I could have one minute back I know what I would do
I would hold you close in my arms and say that I loved you. 

I miss you my sweet Virginia Ann, the first girl I ever loved
You're singing with the angels now looking down from up above.

I didn't have to time to tell you, I thought you always knew
Now all I have to offer is this funeral song for you.

i think you meant "angels" in those lines..
This is so well expressed, but really, James, I think she knew and if not then, she does now....
In times like this, and i have experienced them also, we always wish we would have said more, showed we cared more...i think it just goes with the territory of grief.
