Time has passed too quickly
As now we say goodbye
And tears that cloud our vision
Demand a reason why.
It seems we met a day ago
There’s more to say and do
My direction has been altered
And I’m stuck here missing you.
My thoughts are filled with sorrow
Yet hope does fill my chest
For lessons I have learned from you
Will help me do my best.
The mark you’ve made is certain
You’ve helped to let me see
That I can learn and grow and strive
There’s beauty inside me.
So weep not yet in passing
There’s something I must say
Thanks for all your caring thoughts
You’ve given me each day.
Don’t think you’ll be forgotten
For that can never be
For friendship you have grown right here
You’ve shared your heart with me.
