What do we have left,
besides a few memories,
a couple of photos,
and the undying love in our hearts?
JP, you’ll always be apart
of our lives,
until the end of time.
Your presence will forever be felt
just the thought of you makes my heart melt.
We’ve known each other so long
but in a split second you were gone,
and I wasn’t near you…
I wasn’t even there
but I know you know I care.
Why did this happen to us?
In GOD, I’ll forever have trust.
Still, with the blink of an eye
just as the wind blew by,
you were erased from this earth,
strangers will never know your worth,
foes will always want to see
how much you meant to me
JP, you weren’t phony,
you were what we call a real Ã¢€˜GÃ¢€™.
I’ll keep you in my thoughts
I’ll think of you everyday
as I proceed to drink my quart
our memories will always remain
and when the time comes,
when it’s my turn,
because of you, I won’t run.
We’ll meet up again,
a better place, a better space
and lots of extra time to catch up on
NOW and THEN.
