Why say a last goodbye to you?
You aren't that far away, it's true.
You are gone; but only for a while.
Soon, again, I'll see that smile.
A friend beyond the simple kind
Who sees into my heart, and mind.
Who understands when things go awry,
Is sympathetic when a girl needs to cry.
In the meantime, you will always be
Locked safely in my memory.
A shoulder to cry on,
A hand to cling to,
Some one to laugh with,
Some one to sing to.
There will be no last goodbye from me.
I will hold you in my reverie.
