RIP but shine on my friends…..gone but not forgotten.
One year ago, to this day
Those men took your life away
Your family still trying to heal
from such a tragic steal.
For your loved ones it will never be the same
Sad that in South Africa a man is fair game.
Remember you still, as we always will.
A friend in need. A friend indeed.
Few days ago the world lost another soul
Cancer took on her its toll
She was the best roommate ever
Two years we spent in the same room together
Never ever anything but a hug or a smile
and then we lost contact for a while
But finding her again
gave us chance to catch up from way back when
Only to last not long
Despite her being so strong
Till the very end, you remained a friend
Your chats, support and always a positive thought
Is what you brought
even in a time when I expected you to be distraught
I still planned a reunion for us all
I know we would have had a ball
But time ran out…
and we will have to go without
Your light will shine on
Even now that you’re gone
You both made my world a better place
Put a smile on my face
Now that you are gone
Your memories live on
You are gone but not forgotten.
