My best friend died last night - I am devestated. How do you handle death?

My Best Friend Died Last Night

My best friend died and slipped away,
I wonder what I'll do today.
I cannot call or see her again,
Not sure what to do, or when.

She could charm you by a mile,
And always knew how to make me smile.
I wish she had not gone away,
I really tried to make her stay.

God had other plans, you see,
And took her far away from me.
She's in a better place, I know.
But oh how far she had to go.

She left behind her family,
And other friends, besides me.
We will grieve and then console,
Each other as on this road we go.

I won't forget nor will I find,
Another like her - I'm consigned.
I'll write about her with my pen,
And later hope to meet again.

My best friend passed in 2000 and I still miss her, to this day. I am so sorry. She misses you also and you two will meet up again. As will Cindy and I. Thank you for sharing.:(
