I’m counting the days for Spring to come
You know I dislike Winter time
If you were here, we could stroll on the beach
Feeling free and released
Have I told you that I have a dog?
Poppy is sweet and strong
Do you remember
When we used to sing and dance?
Every moment together was a real chance
You were young and full of energy
Heaven took you away so soon from me
At night, I ask the stars
To guide you wherever you are
I keep the promise in your name
Although life will never be the same
One day, we’ll meet again
My dear friend.
