"Take this cup from me" He said,
He knows your pain, my friend.
Selfishly, one more time, my soul craves to hear,
"Ladybug, I love you", and feel you so near.
It's the simplest things, I will miss deep inside,
Long talks, tight hugs, laughter until we cried.
If I had known, on that fateful day,
Your agony, your pain, I would have taken away.
I feel somehow I failed too,
My only solace is peace for you.
Holding close to my faith,
I know it's the only way.
The Prince of Peace, holds us both today.
My soul begs, please don't let it be in vain.
A glimpse, a moment, your last decision,
Squeezing my heart, and blurring my vision.
You weren't the you I knew that day,
If I had only known, but you didn't want it that way.
Guarding me, protecting me to the end,
You were always my soft place to land.
I forgive you, do you forgive me?
I hope I was the friend you needed me to be.
For now, I will let go of our earthly embrace,
In Eternity, we will see face to face.
Pain twists inside me but I know what is true,
Tearfully that day, Jesus said "I've got you".
I hope heaven is ready for the brilliance you possess,
I love you my friend, I pray you, peace and rest.
