Julie and Pearl Rose Cadiz

Julie Rose and
Pearl Cadiz I thought you'd always be there. I never thought beyond. Your friendship was a given. And then, too soon, you'd gone.
I wish I'd fully savored, The time we spent together. I wish I'd realized the ease with which, Life's fragile thread is severed.
I miss you my dear friends.
