I regret that I never knew you
When your mind was sharp and keen,
When you challenged life with your wisdom -
When you dared and accomplished your dream.

But...I meet you in the hallways
And I walk "a piece" with you -
And I value the tip of a friendship
With a lady that used to be you.

Oh, our friendship is different I grant you -
Still I count it as cherished and blessed;
When I look out at those around me,
I think perhaps we passed the test!

For your eyes light up when you see me -
And you reach for my hand - on you own -
To accomplish this much in the darkness...
Just wait ...till we make it Home!
