An unlikely friendship formed between us two;
But all along God knew what you had to go through.
He knew you’d need a friend, although we had a distant start;
He knew I had so much love to give within my heart.
I’ll miss you playing with the kiddies; believe me, they’ll miss you too;
I’ll miss you saying “What do you want LaKiesha?”; nobody can say it like you.
I’ll miss our conversations and mostly I’ll miss your loud laugh;
I’ll miss you singing to Paul Morton; but I promise, I won’t stay sad.
I know you’re not hurting anymore – that’s what helps me be okay;
It was time for your forever, so on this earth you could not stay.
But God has been working, even when we couldn’t see;
He just had to get you ready for your greatest journey.
6 months, 4 days; you fought for so long;
Don’t worry about MaMa – even in her weakness, God remains strong.
Our last talk, you told that I’ll always be your buddy;
You’ll forever be mine, Gregory Lynn; forever it will be.💙
