“Jack a Friend I Almost Knew”

“Jack a Friend I Almost Knew”

I met you at the end
knowing there would be little time for you friend
I saw how beautiful you were
Within your words, I heard
Your heart spoke to mine

What surprised me is how you saw
my heart within such a short time
How did you know my beauty within?
Surely it was a sign
Of a friendship that would begin

My wondering mind visited you today
and held your hand
to say goodbye
Letting you know it was okay
that our time together would be delay

I would meet you again when
we will have all the time spend
I saw you with my mind
smiling the most beautiful grin
Telling me you are happy to begin
a new life within Heaven without the world’s sin

I will miss you until then

Note: the world’s sin is “death” as in Genesis when Adam and Eve sin.
